Drawing in Gdansk
Gdansk, Poland, is a beautiful drawing location with a fascinating recent history.
It is, effectively, a perfectly restored medieval town and is a famous centre for amber jewellery.
The German attack on the Polish military depot at Westerplatte marked the start of the World War II and the city was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1939. During post-1945 era, the city was rebuilt from war damage, and vast shipyards were constructed. Gdansk was the home of the trade union Solidarity. Strikes in the 1980s paved way for the abolishment of communism in 1989, which eventually led to the demolishing of the Berlin Wall and the re-unification of Germany in 1989.
The Gdansk drawing holiday is for 4 nights, staying in the heart of the old town
by the river. The central accommodation is in rooms for 2 - 4 people with en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is included. We can visit Westerplatte, a forty minute boat ride away along the river to the coast, and draw in the old town and at the shipyard. We have a group tutorial every evening before dinner.
