Here's a short video about the 2018 drawing holiday in Bali. Hope you enjoy!
I've just gone through all my Facebook pages and sorted them into one. Over the years the pages have grown organically from the original drawing in Spain page to a situation where every trip had its own. So now, we just have the one Drawing Escapes page that will have all the news for all the trips... phew! You will find it here https://www.facebook.com/drawingescapespage/ Please follow for all the news and availability on future drawing holidays.
Here are a few images from the trip to Berlin last week by Eleanor Marshman, Catherine Ward, Jane West, Alan Baines and Shannon Ward. Video coming soon.
Here are 3 sketchbook pages by Eleanor Marshman from the secret destination trip last year, which was to Riga in Latvia. Love the little compositional drawings! Eleanor has a new blog coming soon.. will keep you posted :)
So now there is no need to worry about the environmental impact of your creativity! From September this year all the drawing trips are going to be carbon neutral at no extra cost. We're going to off-set your flight carbon and the carbon generated by transport at our destinations by donating to myflightcarbon.com in support of the World Land Trust. The WLT purchase endangered environments and protect them by employing local people to manage the projects.

We're going green! :)
Congratulations to Iga Szymanska (drawing in Spain 2016) for being awarded the Highly Commended prize in the London heats of the International Design Competition run by the Society of Dyers and Colourists. These images are from her research proposal for drug sensitive textiles. Que bonita!
Here's a very short drawing in Bali promo for Instagram :) We're now taking bookings..
Our secret destination trip last month was to Riga in Latvia. What a lovely laidback city! I'll post some drawings and photos soon, but in the meantime here's a little gem for Kathy Olsson.
Congratulations to Jess (Thailand trip 2016) on being runner up in the i-dott wallpaper design competition at the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester with her Thailand inspired design. The theme for the design brief was 'Limitless' and was sponsored by Arthouse Limited. Nice one Jess!
