*** Workshop postponed due to new Covid travel restrictions – new date later in 2022 to be announced ***
I am very excited to announce that I have partnered with a wonderful travel company, Morocco Ecoway, to bring you a 9-day travel sketching workshop in Morocco in 2022!
Sketchy Adventures in Morocco
The workshop will focus on the art of travel sketching in ink and watercolour.
We will cover what to look for in a scene, how to identify what interests you, how to get your sketch started, composition, designing a sketchbook spread, travel journaling, working with ink, applying watercolour, how to sketch loosely, creating texture and adding some dynamic touches such as watercolour splatters or final highlights with a white gel pen and the list goes on!
I want to give you all the tools and techniques to make you confident at sketching on the move wherever you and whatever the weather. I want to help you focus on the joy of travel sketching itself and capturing your memories rather than being so tied to the outcome.
The workshop is 9 days starting on 21st March 2022 and ending on 29th March 2022.
The workshops starts and ends in Marrakech, Morocco. As well as exploring the Red City itself, within the 9 days we will travel to many other parts of the country, including the High Atlas mountains, the Hollywood of Africa (Ait-Ben HAddou), the oasis of Skouru as well as ride camels through the Sahara to watch the sun set in the desert dunes.
All this as well as over 40 hours of sketching tuition from yours truly!!
Pretty much everything is included! Transfers from the airport, all ground transport, an English-speaking fully licensed guide, all accommodation, all food, experiences such as the camel rides, a botanical lesson, cocktail henna party etc, all entrance fees to monuments, me(!) and 40 hours of art tuition from me, the list goes on!
The only things not included are your art materials, your flights to and from Morocco and any additional purchases on the trip such as souvenirs, magic carpets etc….
The trip is €3000 euros in total.
To reserve your place, you need to pay a €500 euro deposit to me and a deposit to Morocco Ecoway, the balance can be paid at the time of the trip.
This will be the best sketchy adventure yet, a trip of a lifetime…and I really hope you guys can join me!
