SKETCHING #1
SESSION REVIEW

WE SKETCHED LIKE VAN GOGH!

It was on Saturday 11 April that the LUCA Luxembourg Center for Architecture and the volunteering architects Jean-Paul, Arnaud and Mauro launched the very first virtual sketching session. We were no less than 18 participants (the youngest being 13 years old) coming from Luxembourg or neighbouring countries for this original and convivial moment!

Amateur or experienced sketchers, we were all gathered – despite the distance and the confinement – around the theme “Sketch like Van Gogh”. We were able to discover some ink sketches, made around 1888 by Van Gogh and, above all, we had the opportunity to familiarise ourselves with drawing techniques and tools.

In a relaxed and participative atmosphere, with our pencils, felt-tip pens, fountain pens, brushes, watercolours, and nevertheless, precious advice and tips from Jean-Paul, Arnaud and Mauro, the participants made the drawings masterpieces that you can discover here.
