Sketchbook Tour Series
Sketchbook Tours is a series of events designed to stimulate learning from each other. The project is part of our mission to bring educational content to our members.
During each Sketchbook Tour, one urban sketcher will take us through their sketchbooks, offering us the unique opportunity to not only learn about their favorite mediums and techniques, but also understand the thoughts and design decisions behind their work.
We will hear the story of their artistic development, discover how they learn and what inspires them. And we will get to interact with them directly through questions and discussions in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment.

The leading line of Hana's artwork of more than 50 years has been inspired by external changes and internal transformations in her life. Prague inspires Hana with her unique beauty, history and mythology. About 2 years ago, Hana began to work on the painting “Heavenly Prague” that is going to be exhibited together with preparatory sketches.
Jiří always liked to draw, but when he found his father's old oils and tried to paint his first canvas, he fell in love with painting. As he became more involved, he found that he needed to practice more and put away the large canvases for the time being. His sketchbooks have become a great friend, and he is constantly filling them with sketches of the city, people or figures.

My favourite medium is tiny sketchbooks. To me, they are visual diaries of quiet moments at home, and unique moments in faraway places. All my supplies must be compact, lightweight, and mess-free, since they follow me wherever I go. You may be surprised to learn that I don't find this at all limiting. I can fit everything I need into my everyday handbag, comfortably.
