Explore Prague with pen and watercolour. Professional urban sketcher Ian Fennelly will show you techniques and methods that help you to create your own lively and atmospheric sketches. Learn to find your own individual style and fill your sketchbook step by step. Inspired by the charm of the beautiful Venetian scenery you’ll be able to capture your favourite travel memories with brush and pen.
It is a matter of fact that Prague is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world (!) by countless people – rightly so. Not only is it beautiful on the outside but historically significant, as well – no wonder, the Historic Centre of Prague has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1992. Words like “golden” or phrases like “the crown of the world” come to mind when people who have been there before talk about the heart of Europe. A perfect place to capture your memories of in a sketchbook, don’t you think?
Ian will teach you about the composition and the structure of the sketch, how to recognise clear perspective and how to train your eye to see what is important for your work, and reduce it to the essential elements. All of this and so much more will be taught and developed in many drawing and sketching sessions together. The course aims to deepen your skills in sketching, drawing and watercolouring, to exchange views, to capture the atmospheric scenery of Prague, and to have fun.
- train the eye to see shapes, value and colour in outdoor scenes
- become comfortable sketching in public
- learn to draw standing up
- become an urban sketcher and start reaping the benefits of seeing the world in a new way
All the workshops and demonstrations will take place in Prague. Ian will choose the most suitable and inspiring subjects to draw: from churches to bridges or castles – nothing left to ask for an Urban Sketcher. Each session will cater for varying standards of ability and confidence, and you will be stimulated throughout the workshops by stories and little demo sketches to make the experience more rewarding and stimulating.
Accommodation: You will stay at Vienne House Andel’s Prague, a wonderful 3-star-hotel. Located in the “Angel’s District”, Andel in Czech (if that doesn’t sound wonderful enough) of Prague, it will provide you with anything you can ask for, especially comfort – but have a look yourself: https://www.viennahouse.com/en/andels-prague/the-hotel/overview.html?UL=1&ACT=4&BUILD=6415&STRMVER=4&CAPREQ=0
Target group: (all levels) This course is meant to be for beginners as well as for advanced learners.
Number of participants: 6-12
Where do we sketch/draw? We will draw and sketch mainly outside en plein air, so you should not mind walking longer distances on foot. Nevertheless, if the weather is bad we usually have access to the studio inside, where we can draw and sketch, too.

„Je mehr du schaust, desto mehr siehst du, desto mehr verstehst du.“ Ian Fennelly liebt es, seine Leidenschaft für das Skizzieren an Ort und Stelle – mit Stift, Pinsel und Aquarellfarben – zu verbreiten; er ist erstaunlich gut darin, originelle Geschichten über die Abenteuer eines echten Urban Sketchers zu erzählen. Seine professionellen Fähigkeiten, in Kombination mit der charmanten und bodenständigen Persönlichkeit, machen ihn zu einem perfekten Dozenten. Lebendige Skizzen werden in Windeseile gezeichnet und die Liebe für die Kunst und den kreativen Umgang mit der Welt schimmert durch alle Linien, Farben und Formen seiner Werke.
