WITH
Adélaïde and Jack's TEAM | about the guide

No trip to the Left Bank of Paris would be complete without a stroll in the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens that surround the opulent Luxembourg Palace. Home to statues dating back to the 17th century, the gardens are filled immaculate lawns, budding flowers, impressive fountains and trees in all shapes and sizes. From the meeting point at the main entrance, the guide will take you around the gardens telling you more about the plants, buildings and statues including the Médicis Foundation and the Statue de la Liberté. A peaceful haven in the heart of Paris with only the noise of children playing and ponies trotting, the Jardin du Luxembourg is an ideal place to find artistic inspiration. During the tour, you will stop to sketch different garden scenes with help of your artist guide. The tour is aimed at artists of all levels with as little or as much guidance as you need.

Adélaïde and Jack

Paris

languages :
Anglais/English, Français/French

Jack was born into a family of artists in England. Following a holiday to Paris in 2003, he decided to come back to France to study at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Adelaïde also chose to study at the Beaux-Arts de Paris in order to focus on painting and in particular frescos, and this is where they met each other and became friends. The pair share a passion for Paris, art and teaching. So, when Jack suggested creating tours where tourists draw and discover Paris at the same time, Adelaïde loved the idea and they set up a company. The aim? Combine drawing and tourism to share the city’s streets, secrets and monuments with visitors. Their favorite spots? Montmartre, Ile St Louis and the Luxembourg Gardens. Jack is delighted when clients who claim “not to know how to draw” are satisfied with their artistic creations at the end of a tour. While, Adelaïde loves meeting the people in her groups, sparking their curiosity and adding value to their visit.
