About your host

I moved to Rome in the 1990s, after studying architecture at Princeton and Harvard. My design, teaching, and writing focuses on sustainable urbanism. My sketchbook is always with me, and I love to share my love of Rome, so bringing these together into one experience seemed natural.

What we’ll do

I will guide you through the creation of a sketchbook or scrapbook. We'll begin with the construction of a simply-bound booklet at my workshop in central Rome. You will choose from a selection of papers, both blank and preprinted. We'll then head out into the city to capture images, make drawings, and collect found objects to collage into the sketchbooks. After our exploration, we will circle back…

What else you should know

Wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. We will be walking on cobblestones and perhaps sitting on steps.

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Paper and sketching stuff I'll provide paper, pencils, pens, glue, and anything else you need, but bring your own tools if you like.

What to bring

Your favorite drawing instruments (pens, pencils, etc.) if you like, but we'll provide the basics.

Where you'll be

Our workshop is in the heart of Renaissance Rome, between Campo de' Fiori and St. Peter's. Our walk will take us around the backstreets nearby, into artisan workshops, chapels, courtyards, stopping in piazzas to sketch, and for a coffee or gelato break somewhere wonderful along the way.
