Well how about it? The trip leaves on the 16 February 2012 and returns on 29 February 2012, it has been specially prepared for Maxine Railton who has considerable experience in running these sketching trips to India, by Steppes Travel.
Here is some of the information on the trip:
This very special journey to southern India has been designed for those who wish to experience a fascinating culture with a chance to develop the art of quick and vivid sketches.
During your first week you focus on developing and practising your drawing skills, whilst based at the college campus of SCAD (Social Change and Development). This environment has been chosen as it provides wonderful opportunities for drawing and fascinating insights into SCAD’s impressive work with the rural communities of Tamil Nadu. Part of the cost of your trip will make important contribution to their work
Each day will be led by Maxine Relton as you visit the local initiatives and villages in the area and receive guidance as you choose your subjects to draw.
The second week in contrast is not so focussed on sketching but allows you to travel through the beautiful region of Kerala, experiencing stunning mountains and river scenery which will hopefully continue to inspire you to practise your drawing skills. Maxine will be on hand to assist if need be but in a less structured way than in week one. The journey ends with a few days to relax on Keralan Backwaters.
