What you'll do

You will follow me into a tour that will introduce you to Athens' as a modern city, as a historic place and as my home. I will share with you my 10-years-research backgound on city's history while practising drawing and sketching. You will feel like architects and you will find your own view of Athens by sketching the monuments and the historic landscape. I will teach you all the techniques architects use to sketch and to understand a place. In the end apart from your photographs you will bring back home your unique and personal sketchbook of your travel in Greece. And that is something that cannot be forgotten. Scripta Manent! Together we will walk inside the city's neighbourhoods meeting Athens everyday life and at the same time the ancient, medieval and contemporary sites of great importance. there we will practise sketching composition and proportions. Latter we will start by hicking on Lykabettus hill like all historic visitors of Athens whould do, have 360 view, and focus on ladnscape sketch while understanding the city from above.

I am a multiple awarded architect graduated among the best in my year from Athens Architecture School (NTUA). In addition I have enrolled a Master course of "Monuments' Protection" which helps me to expand my knowledge into History and Technoogy. At the same time, since last year I have teached drawing/sketching and since 2007 I have travelled in 16 countries in Europe, Asia and USA. My goal is to bring architecture closer to the public.
