Enjoy day-long workshops discovering the people and places of Mainz, learning about diverse sketching subjects!

Mainz is a city located by the river Rhine, with a rich history dating back over 2000 years. Once part of the Roman Empire, Mainz is a now a bustling university town and the capital of the province Rhineland Palatinate.

Our headquarters is the regional museum, or Landesmuseum Mainz, situated near the old town in a beautiful baroque building. The old quarter, with the market places, the Dom and half-timbered houses is just a short walk away.

In day-long workshops we will discover Mainz´s places and people and learn different Urban Sketching approaches with a faculty featuring both local and international instructors.

The workshops will be held on two consecutive weekends that can be booked separately: The dates are 29th of June- 1st of July 2018 & 7th of July- 8th of July. The first workshop weekend is three days long and will feature Lapin, Marina Grechanik & Sebastian Koch. The second weekend will be from Saturday till Sunday and will be spent with Inma Serrano and Johanna Krimmel.

The weekend includes not only day-long workshops, but also a special drawing event hosted on both Saturdays.

The workshops will be held in english. A translator to german will be present if necessary.

2nd Workshop Weekend: Saturday & Sunday 7th- 8th of July 2018:

Join Urban Sketchers Inma Serrano & Johanna Krimmel for two days of drawing! We will be exploring the old quarter & experiment with loose lines, trying to sketch fearlessly. We´ll also explore the possibilities of chinese ink, creating captivating street scenes full of subtle washes and textures.

Workshop “Fearless sketching in Mainz” by Inma Serrano

In this workshop we will try to feel like children watching a place for the first time.With simple exercises to leave behind the fear of resemblance, we will look into the essence and the feeling that the place inspires us. We will look for our own drawing language and style.I want to focus on the idea of rhythm, movement and colour that every place has.

Sketching this rhythm will give our drawings a much more dynamic and urban character.

Workshop “True Grit - Painting confidently with chinese ink” by Johanna Krimmel

Painting directly with chinese ink may take a bit of courage, but once you discover the many possibilities it is very satisfying. Also don‘t be afraid to get a little dirty and gritty, let‘s mess around and see how we can catch a scene quickly by applying different kinds of loose brushwork. In this workshop we will discover that black ink is not only about strong linework, but also about delicate greys and everything in-between, which can add amazing depth to your sketch.
