Day Trips and Activities Highlight
How many times has each of us seen a scene, a person, an event, and thought: "I would like to draw that, to make others see and understand the beauty and uniqueness of that image". Usually we use words, but with Mike we can learn to use our hands, with a sheet of paper and a pencil. In the course of a holiday in Tuscany, we have the possibility to gather hundreds of these images. We won't use a camera or a video camera; instead with Mike we will create special itineraries, putting ourselves in front of monuments, people, landscapes, even a dog...and then draw them. We won't have simply a guide, but an instructor who will give us new tools. Below you will find a few proposals for creating your drawing opportunities; but Mike is also at your complete disposal if you want to schedule a day or half a day with him with an itinerary of your choosing.
