Galerie Vivienne - les artistes étudiants

Galerie Vivienne
student artists

If you frequent the side halls in the famous covered passages of Paris, 
you will likely see gatherings of students 
sketching the century-old architecture.  
The arches, the moldings, the skylights, 
and even the floor tiles are worthy of a sketch.

You will see students in the not-so-famous covered passages as well

Rue des Petits Champs,

Art students are so lucky to live in Paris where they're surrounded by fantastic sights.

A nice photo, sitting dry and warm with fellow sketchers.

My thoughts exactly Starman!

How can you not be inspired when surrounded by such exquisite detail? Lovely photo!

And some may not be sketching and a few might just be sketchy. Ah Paris!

Do you suppose they know how fortunate they are? I hope so. Nicely captured, Genie!

This looks like a scene out of Toulouse Lautrec.

Oh to have that kind of time.

Ah, what a moment. So carefree and with such a flow of creativity!
God bless you!
