What you'll do

As experienced by team Google, Nike & Amazon. Featured in Travel & Leisure, Mercury News & Downtown Magazine. Looking to reconnect with your colleagues & teammates while working from home? Send me a message to discuss group discounts! A fun & meaningful experience for families, friends, date nights, colleagues & people of all ages & backgrounds. In challenging times art offers one of our most primal ways of connecting with ourselves & each other. As the host of the in-person experience "Sketch & the City," I have witnessed the transformative power of art with people of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities. I have led experiences with thousands of guests from all around the world who have exchanged perspectives & seen the magic of New York City in new ways. On this new online sketching experience, we will explore how drawing strengthens & enhances the relationship between inside and outside, particularly when you are feeling isolated or confined within a small space. This is not a technical drawing exercise but an exercise in revivifying the imagination & looking with renewed appreciation at the internal spaces we inhabit & create. No art experience necessary. No drawing skills required. Check my bio & in-person experience to read from over 700 genuine 5 star reviews: https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/98988
