I was extremely honored to have been invited to tutor workshops over a weekend as part of the Urban Sketching Summer School in Riga in August 2017. The aim was to help people explore and find their own way forward with their work.

The Urban Sketcher Riga group, led by Agnese Aljēna and Masha Zurikova organise lectures, workshops and mentored sketch walks together with different artists from all over the globe throughout the year. Urban sketching is becoming a global phenomenon.

It was a wonderful experience to visit this beautiful city, to meet many talented, friendly and interesting people (even found a few links to Leicester and Ireland) and then have the chance to go off to explore for a few days around Estonia. Unforgettable!
