What we’ll do

We'll meet at a local cafe, order our drinks (included), then settle in at our tables and relax as we sketch together and enjoy the great view of Kyoto's historic Higashiyama area. Not only will you have a chance to take in the scenery, but you'll leave with a beautiful work of art to memorialize your trip to Kyoto. No artistic experience is required! I'll guide you step-by-step* on how to sketch…

Where you'll be

We'll sip delicious handcrafted lattes at a cafe overlooking the historically-preserved Higashiyama district. We'll have an excellent view of the iconic Yasaka Pagoda, built over 500 years ago. Ideally, we'll be on the patio so dress for the temperature (and bring sunglasses!) In case of rain we'll be inside next to the window. There are so many things in the area to see before or after the class as well: feel free to ask me for suggestions.
