If you are a tourist or a local, no matter what... As long as you love art and sketching... this activity is for you. From AcoffeeAsketch I selected multiple cafes or locations where we can sketch a monument or landmark of the city. We will visit two of them: 1. A cafe in Markt with views to the whole square, the Town Hall and Niuewe Kerk tower; 2. Depending on the weather we can choose a cafe in Beestenmarkt or the terrace of Stads-Koffyhuis with views of the titled tower of Oude Kerk. And don't worry if you are not an expert, I will guide you through the sketch, if you need basic knowledge about perspective or proportions, I can help you with that. I will bring all the material you need to make your own postcard - souvenir memory of beautiful Delft.
My name is Sonsoles Masia and I have a degree in Fine arts and Master in Architecture. I am a watercolor and live urban sketcher lover and a history and traveling enthusiast. @acoffeeasketch was born during my travels and my search to imprint my own memories into paper. A photograph is too easy, I realized how a drawing can capture the ambient, the smell, the sounds, the company and even the conversations you can hear while you are drawing it. It brought me in some kind of trance, into a world where sounds and other sense stimulus goes straight into my subconscious. Those feelings get print into the drawing and I can almost have them again after a while when I look back at the finished sketch. Join me in delft, And find with me beautiful perspectives and charming corners to grab a coffee and do what I love: Sketching
Pens, pencils, Watercolour paper, high quality watercolours, brushes. Sketching tips and good conversation about art and…
I selected two locations to make two different sketches: 1. First we will meet in Markt. Deflt's main square has many terraces and cafes with big windows with views to the most important landmarks. Like Willen Van Oranje cafe. 2. After one hour we will walk to Oude Delft Street, to sit down at the terrace of Stads-Koffyhuis with views of the titled tower of Oude Kerk. If the weather is not good, we can head to Beestenmark, Cafe Belvédère.
Remember that you don't need to be an expert to enjoy this activity. I will help you to create a beautiful postcard that you can take home. Your own memory of Delft. And... who knows? Maybe you end up sketching again in your next destination. The world needs more sketches and less selfie sticks.
