REYKJAVIK SKETCHER TOUR
REYKJAVIK SKETCHER TOUR
For a long time I've wanted to do this, so I'm excited to finally share this event with you. I’ve lived in Reykjavik for two years now so sharing my home with like-minded creative people is a dream come true.
Reykjavik Sketcher Tour takes you on a 3 hour walking tour of Reykjavik, stopping at 5 of my favourite architectural spots in the city. Capture, in detail, the colourful architecture, unique features and charming streetscape of the most northern capital of the world. On this 3 hour workshop, we will start with quick, simple drawings in black ink and increase to more detailed pieces - feel free to bring watercolours if you like.
On this tour, British Architect and illustrator, Sonia Nicolson-Guðrúnarson shares her work under the nickname of the 'Reykjavik Sketcher'. With helpful instruction from Sonia, you will quickly pick up sketching skills whilst increasing confidence in your own artistic ability. Come wander the Icelandic streets with a sketchbook in hand, and learn how to quickly sketch and bring your drawings to life. You'll take home a unique drawing documenting your time.
The main aim is of course to have fun, so no need to worry about your drawing skills here. If you don't finish your sketch, no worries, you can take some photos and finish it later on.
So, if you are visiting Reykjavik, or live here, this is an opportunity to meet up and have fun wandering the city and its sites with a bunch of creative people and your sketchbook. Observe, sketch and enjoy this Scandinavian city.
