Sketching in Abruzzo, Italy…

Picture a small Italian village, perched on the mountainside. where you wake to the sound of church bells. All you need to do is sketch, and drink a little coffee! Stay in a beautiful small boutique hotel or a comfortable family house.


Refresh and recharge as you fill your sketchbook in this supportive, creative and inspiring environment with a small group (10-14) of fellow sketchers


This sketchbooking holiday is ideal for single travelers, partners with different interests, or novices who want to learn in a sunny climate with like-minded people. With this very Italian environment and interchange of ideas you will soon find new life  in your drawings. Watch a short clip filmed by Ralph Papa  https://youtu.be/Y1EW3vQF58I
