USk News: Workshop in Naples


March 28, 2013

HIDDEN NAPLES, DRAWING AND DISCOVERING
IN THE SOUTH OF ITALY

For the second year in a row, Italian architect and urban sketcher Simo Capecchi is hosting an Urban Sketchers Workshop in her city of Naples. The dates are coming up soon: May 30 - June 2. (Watch a slideshow of last year's edition.)

The three and a half day workshop will offer a deep immersion in Naples to all the sketchers who have always dreamed of visiting the South of Italy. Participants will have a rare opportunity to sketch inside private homes and gardens that normally aren't open to the public. In addition to Simo, three other artists will take turns leading field sketching sessions: Laura Scarpa, a comic artist who has always kept a graphic diary; Caroline Peyron, an art teacher and artist; and Lapin, a French illustrator and indefatigable urban sketcher.
