Travel sketching workshop
in Venice

18th to 20th September 2020

Who has never dreamed of visiting Venice? Discover its architectural treasures that testify to its fabulous history?
A magical and intimate city, Venice is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for many artists of all kinds.

But Venice is much more than a postcard. The Serenissima lets itself be discovered with all the senses.

Together we will get lost in this strange tangle of alleys and canals, and discover Venice in a more personal and intimate way. We will look for inspiring subjects to fill our notebook.

During these 3 days sketching, we will walk through the streets of Venice, our drawing material in hand. We will explore our tools, and experience different drawing techniques, in order to awaken our sensitivity and stimulate our creativity. 

We will discover, or remember, some basics of drawing, such as perspective, depth and composition, and forget them deliberately to make our drawings more spontaneous.

We will draw in different neighborhoods of the city, in search of themes and environments characteristic of the city: architecture, street environments, urban panoramas, life scenes, details, characters, etc.



Friday 18 to Sunday 20 September 2020 .
From 10h a 17h. (incl. lunch break)
We’ll confirm the meeting point and program to the participants by email.
