You can come and draw as well or you can participate in the drawing lesson.

When you arrive (2.45) indicate if you wish to have a lesson from Sonja van Kerkhoff. Materials needed for the lesson: bring 1 or more sheets of a4 or a3 paper, a hardboard or cardboard for the paper, peg for holding the paper on the board, a pencil, conte or pen.
Contact Antoinette Voogd (link to come) if you wish to purchase drawing materials for the lesson from her.

Sonja van Kerkhoff (Born New Zealand, has lived in Leiden since 1999), teaches drawing by a way of looking at space. You learn how to see the spaces and to draw these rather than contours. Lines are not the focus and so you will be surprised how fluid the results are. Beginners or those accomplished in drawing are welcome. More about Sonja is here > www.sonjavank.com
