What you'll do

In this experience you can get away from the classic tourist circuit. We are going to explore the beautiful Giudecca Island in Venice. With a sketchbook, some pens, and watercolors, we’ll create drawings and sketches on a postcard sketchbook during a three-hour walk. First, we will get to know each other over a glass of wine or a coffee and I'll give you a sketching set and some technical informations. We’ll explore the neighborhood and stop at the most interesting places to draw. I’ll be there to give you advices and technical tips to help your view. You don't need to be an expert to participate. This activity is open to everyone who wants to have a fun and creative experience.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our workshop across Fondamenta della Giudecca, just in front of Dorsoduro. We will go out from the main turistic itinerary to re- discover the 19th century that made this island. We will walk along the picturesque views either on the skyline of San Marco Square and the most beautiful venetian churches of Palladio.

This experience was awesome, I spent a beautiful morning in Giudecca with Chris and Federica, he started with some basic notions about sketching and right away I was sketching myself. We tryied different settings and motivs, sometimes only quick sketching, sometimes including color. At the end I could take my pieces of art home :) Thx Chris! This has motivated me to keep practising :)

While in Venice, I was interested in drawing the architecture. Chris helped me understand the concepts of perspective and apply them. He has a deep knowledge of architecture and art, and is very encouraging.

This is a wonderful experience, away from the crazy tourist scene. As an artist/teacher Chris is friendly, helpful and encouraging. We sketched/painted in several different locations and he adjusted the plan according to our interests. He was lovely with our 11yo son and could change his input/advice according to our different skill levels. Overall it was a delightful day, definitely created and captured some memories, and so different to the instant, shallow, selfie mode that is becoming prevalent. Thanks Chris!!
