Thanks to all those who came drawing last Saturday. We were lucky with the weather and managed to dodge the rain and even get some sunshine at Sopwell Ruins. Here's a little video of the day's events.
Here's a very short video about our last drawing meet-up in London last week. Next one will be in St Albans on the 21st October. Let us know if you'd like to join us! Click here
Here is a great opportunity for a workshop by an ex Drawing Escapes guest, Iga Szymanska.

MINDFUL LINES is an opportunity to unleash your creativity and explore the depths of your inner world through various artistic mediums.
From drawing to poetry, collage to storytelling, this event offers a safe and inclusive space for individuals of all backgrounds to come together and tap into their inner creative self. Whether you're an experienced artist or just beginning your artistic journey, this event is designed to ignite your imagination and encourage personal growth.
With like-minded individuals by your side, you'll embark on a journey of self-discovery, guided by experienced facilitator who will help you unlock your artistic potential.
Starting with a simple guided meditation, followed by an interactive creative session, and group discussions, we will explore different techniques and practices that will enable you to express yourself authentically. By embracing mindfulness and tapping into your inner creativity, you'll gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your unique perspective.
We're just back from 4 nights drawing in Krakow. We're definitely going to keep it on our list for next year.. maybe combining it with Gdansk for a 6 night visit to both destinations. The train between the two cities takes about 5 hours and is a lovely journey. Any thoughts? Message us if you're interested. Meanwhile enjoy a 2 minute taster of Krakow.
Here's a short video from our trip to Istanbul in May. Hope you enjoy! If you'd like to join us on next year's drawing in Istanbul holiday please contact us here.
We're just back from an awesome drawing holiday in Istanbul. So impressed, we’re going to do it again next year. It’s a city that has everything, bustling streets of traders that have been doing just that for a 1000 years. Quiet gardens, beautiful peaceful mosques and an historic cuisine that will suit everyone. We had a day trip over the Bosphorus, sipping tea on the ferry, to Asia and the drawing results were varied and exciting. The video is coming soon!
The September Spain trip filled up so quickly that I’ve added another trip leaving 28th September for 7 nights. There are 3 more places available.
2024 will be an exciting time. We’re still focussing on providing very reasonable prices to amazing destinations while supporting your drawing practice of helping you to learn and discover your latent skills and develop your existing expertise.
Bali will run in January followed by a secret trip in April. The next Istanbul trip will be in May, then Gdansk is back on for next year as we’ve been away for too long! This will be in June. Spain, of course, will run in September as usual.
Let us know your thoughts about destinations you’d like to visit that are not on the list... We’re always open to new ideas. If you have a small group of people that want to draw while relaxing on holiday, then let me know where you want to go and I’ll put something together for you.

Thanks to all that came to draw at the V&A last Saturday. It was a brilliant day and we had our best turn-out yet with over 20 participants. It was great to see our regulars again and to have the opportunity to meet new creative people.
Next one will be in St Albans in April. Will have a definite date in the next few days. Email us please if you'd like to join us.
The video from the Bali trip is now on-line and can be found here. We've had emails and a lot of questions about when we will do the next one, so we're thinking either November this year or January 2024. Let us know if you would like to join us asap please.
We still have 3 places left for the Istanbul trip in May and the Krakow trip in June. Spain is on the list again for September but please be quick.. again, only 3 places left.
Thanks to those who came to Bali and helped make it such an awesome adventure and thanks to those who've re-booked to come again next time. Terima kasih banyak.
And finally, if you have an idea for a new drawing destination please get in touch and we'll see if we can make it happen. Go well!
