I am an architect, passionate about cities and travelling. I moved to Mallorca after finishing my studies in Rome and I've been living and working here for 4 years. I draw and seek creativity on daily basis and I love to find new details of Palma architecture through my drawings.
I believe that sketching is a great way to explore the city and to stay curious. It is available to anyone regardless experience or training and creates special and long lasting memories of your travel, in a world of ephemeral médias. Check out instagram.com/sketchingpalma to learn more about me and the sketching :)

Where you'll be

After meeting in front of the Palma Townhall (next to the olive tree), we will continue to a square with a nice view where will do our first sketches. From here we will move to a second spot for another sketch. On our way, we will explore tiny streets with Modernist and Gothic architecture.

We had nice day outside with Iulia. She provided a sketchbook and materials for everyone. We were not experienced at all in sketching, this trip is more for people who are more advanced in that matter. But we enjoyed the company and the knowledge of Iulia.

Мне очень понравился урок с Юлией) Как архитектор она подмечала те нюансы, которые нужны были для создания красивого скетча с правильной перспективой и пропорциями, нужной степенью детелизации и узнаваемости объекта. Мне понравилось, что я получила ответы на интересующие меня вопросы не только по скетчингу конкретного здания, но и окружающей обстановки, людей, растительности и тд. В общем, это было полезно и интересно) и Юля- очень приятный человек. Время в ее компании для меня пролетело незаметно.

Post COVID review: This was the perfect excursion for people who enjoy learning more about art and sketching. Lulia was superb. She was friendly, warm, knowledgeable and encouraging. You can tell she really enjoys architecture and showing others how special and unique buildings and styles of building are. I took this class because I’m an abstract painter and I wanted to expand my artist’s repertoire and become better at sketching and learning to paint/draw buildings. My host carefully guided me and demonstrated for me the skills I need to practice painting/drawing buildings. This was a perfect excursion. If you want something relaxing, interesting and focused, then this excursion is perfect for you. My equipment was sanitized and safely wrapped. My host kept her distance and wore a mask. She made me feel very safe and personalized this excursion for me. I can’t wait to come back to Palma to do more sketches!
