Guided tour to get to know the city of Reus, giving shape to the most beautiful architectural details in sketches.
At the same time that we show the historical roots and the most characteristic corners of this city, we propose a guided tour to learn about the artistic elements offered by the urban landscape of Reus.
Starting from the personal style of each one, we want to enhance the value of the sketch, the immediacy and spontaneity of the gesture of drawing. An advanced level is not necessary.
Throughout the visit, we propose places where the participants can develop small exercises, that in spite of the limited time, they will be able to continue when finishing the tour.
The aim is not to teach how to draw, but to propose ways of watching, knowing about and experiencing the city. Since the pauses will be dynamic, it is proposed to work the drawing in an organic and natural way, losing the fear of the sketch and enhancing its beauty. The point is letting go of the stroke, giving value to each line and gesture.
At the end of the route we will be able to share and comment on the result of the session, as well as rest in the Garden of the Rull House.
