What you'll do

If you are a tourist or a local, no matter what... As long as you love art and sketching... this activity is for you. From AcoffeeAsketch I selected multiple cafes or locations where we can sketch a monument or landmark of the city. We will visit one of them. 1. During summer and sunny days, a sketch from de waag looking into the channel bridges is mandatory. 2. During winter or dutch rainy days, we will find cover with stunning views of the Hooglandse Kerk. And don't worry if you are not an expert, I will guide you through the sketch, if you need basic knowledge about perspective or proportions, I can help you with that. I will bring all the material you need to make your own postcard - souvenir memory of beautiful Leiden.

Sonsoles

My name is Sonsoles Masia and I have a degree in Fine art and Master in Architecture. I am a watercolour and live urban sketcher lover and a history and traveling enthusiast. @acoffeeasketch was born during my travels and my search to imprint my own memories into paper. A photograph is too easy, I realised how a drawing can capture the ambient, the smell, the sounds, the company and even the conversations you can hear while you are drawing it. It brought me in some kind of trance, into a world where sounds and other sense stimulus goes straight into my subconscious. Those feelings get print into the drawing and I can almost have them again after a while when I look back at the finished sketch. Join me in Leiden, And find with me beautiful perspectives and charming corners to grab a coffee and do what I love: Sketching
