Drawing is simply the process of layering shapes, lines, scribbles and values on top of each other until you get your desired result. If you can make a mark on a piece of paper, you can learn how to sketch! Sketching is the process of roughly scribbling an idea on paper. It allows you to bring your idea to life quickly so you can safe time in the long run. It is a great way to brainstorm! Imagine that you the artist can do all this and make your own drawings for your next artistic project.

Look at the buildings and architectural monuments through the eye of an artist who has only a blank sheet of paper and a pencil and wants to capture every detail of buildings or the atmosphere of the streets with people passing by. Imagine that you the artist can do all this and make your own drawings! Prague is an inspiring place for this work and has also been transformed during centuries with its architectural styles such as Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque or Renaissance. At the workshop, we will learn to recognize the characteristics of these styles and then capture them with a pencil and drawing in the contours on the paper. The workshop is interactive and you will take home your own drawings that will be bringing back nice memories of your trip. After the workshop we will sit down in a Czech pub with Czech beer and we will share and talk about what we have created and get inspired by the drawings of the others from the group. Thanks to this unique experience you will come back
I'm Czech, an artist and a yoga teacher, I studied art school with a focus on illustration and graphic design which I did for many years professionally. My hobbies still include drawing and sketching and I love especially pencil as an artistic tool. I like drawing all kind of things such as monuments but also people and animals. Art for me is a meditation when we can fully switch off the mind and concentrate on the creative process. I am fascinated with different artistic techniques but pencil is staying my favorite one. Looking forward meeting you at my workshop!
