The Sketching Workshop is a week-long travel drawing workshop visiting and drawing in Egypt. It is aimed at beginners, although some experience in drawing can help you get more out of the workshop. This trip is designed to be as affordable as possible. Therefore, each participant will be responsible for booking their flights and accommodations. We will share transportation costs (airport transfers, transfers for visits…) and each one will pay for their meals. Although we will do the entire trip in a group and sleep in the same places, etc. I tell you the places where you have to reserve and how to do it, and you take care of it. Then during each day I will be in charge of giving the workshop in the places we visit, I will guide you to make the drawing and I will correct you so that you achieve the best possible result.

During the cruise, we will do the group excursions, but not the official ones of the cruise, but on our own, to have time to draw in the temples.
