Travel sketching
in Avignon, France

25 to 27 april 2020

Stroll through the 14th-century walls, cross the medieval streets and squares of Avignon, admire the austere majesty of the Palais des Papes, the classicism of the mansions, and dream under the fronds of the Rue des Teinturiers are just a few pleasures that we will experience during our drawing trip, April 25-27, 2020.
A city of history and culture, Avignon offers its visitors a rich architectural heritage.

During 3 days we will walk through the medieval streets and squares of Avignon, our drawing material in hand.

We will explore our tools and experience different techniques to arouse our sensitivity and stimulate our creativity.

We will discover or remember some basics of drawing, such as perspective, depth and composition, and we will deliberately forget them so that our drawings are spontaneous.
We will draw in different parts of the city, looking for rich and varied themes to feed our sketchbook such as architecture, street environments, urban panoramas, life scenes, details, characters, etc.
