What you'll do

The first thing you need to know is: You don't need drawing skills! I draw Utrecht is suitable for every drawing level. I will help you out. I give advice and show easy and more difficult options. We walk approximately 2,5 kilometers in the center of Utrecht. We are in several very beautiful places to draw your own personal big 'greetings from Utrecht postcard'. Discover the city in a different way. Not just wandering around, but sitting for a moment to draw what you see. A relaxing experience in a lively city. We start with a Instax photo of you and place it in the middle of a sheet of A4 size paper. Around the Polaroid we draw typical items from Utrecht such as: the Dom tower, architectural ornaments, decorative elements from nature, Miffy, bicycles, etc. We draw in a simple and fast way. I give advice for 'hand lettering' (writing in a nice way). Ultimately you have your own handmade 'Greetings from Utrecht postcard'. You can take a photo of it to put on social media and you can also put it in the letterbox to send it to your loved one.

I was the only one for my particular class but it was so lovely! We had a walk around beautiful Utrecht and Myra picked some great hidden spots for us. It was relaxing to just sit and sketch. There was a template provided to get me started but I could still make the piece my own. Overall I found this a fun and original experience, and a creative way to see Utrecht in a new way.

Met Myra de stad intrekken gaf een andere kijk op de stad. Het verhaal van de stad, cultuur en creativiteit werden samen gepakt. Dit geeft een unieke, afwisselende ervaring, waarbij je een actief aandeel hebt in de tour. Myra heeft de tour goed voorbereid, is vriendelijk en gastvrij. We hebben het super naar onze zin gehad en zouden deze tour dan ook aanraden. Bedankt voor de leuke middag, Myra!

I recommend this experience very highly. It was a unique way to see a city and did not rely on artistic skills. Myra did a great job breaking down the tasks and making it fun, personalized and with a wonderful end product. Go and do this experience

Myra hat ein wirklich schönes Konzept ausgearbeitet mit dem man sich eine Postkarte in A4 Format erzeichnet, die man dann auch noch versenden kann - wenn man möchte. Dabei wandert man durch Utrecht und sieht schöne Plätze abseits der Touristenströme, die man nie alleine entdeckt hätte. Myra ist ein sehr netter Mensch und ich habe mich rundum wohl gefühlt. Dazu ist es entspannend und eine besonders schöne Art eine Stadt zu sehen. Myra hat mir zur Erinnerung eine Stofftasche geschenkt, da habe ich mich besonders gefreut. So habe ich nicht nur mein Bild als Erinnerung (ich versende meins nicht), sondern nehme diese auch zum Einkaufen mit. Ein echt toller Nachmittag!

My friend and I had a lovely day drawing in Utrecht. Our host made us feel welcome and comfortable. The template and assignments really worked for me. Intently looking and drawing made me feel both focussed and relaxed. And I was happy about the end result and the experience.

Op deze manier bekijk je Utrecht op een hele andere manier. Wij hebben het als super leuk ervaren en zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. Jammer dat het in andere steden nog niet bestaat.
