P R O G R A M

Before the morning sessions, which will start at 10am, early risers can stroll through the pretty alleys of this small town, or along a beach to start a tonic and iodized day.

Then we will draw in different places in this charming little town. We will practice different playful techniques so that you can draw a Travel Sketchbook. The distances between each place are short and will be done by foot. 

Each drawing session will begin with explanations and a demo to guide you. It will then be your turn to play, and I will be there to advise you. 

After the afternoon session, which will end at about 5/5:30pm you will be free. You can organise a visit of the city or the surrounding area, such as a boat trip to the island of Batz, or a visit to the beautiful Botanical Garden. Or why not offer you a treat at the Roscoff thalasso center.

10% of the profits will be donated to the «Grain de Sel» association/fondation. This association, composed exclusively of volunteers, aims to provide  a less stressful environment for hospitalized children.

This «Drawing Roscoff» workshop will allow you to combine the pleasure of drawing with the pleasure of travelling.
