What you'll do

As an experienced artist I will show you how to sketch a Berlin motive by your own and take it as a souvenir back home. For that you do not need any prior knowledge, because I will show you the basics for realistic sketching and drawing. I invite you to become part of the artist metropolis. Make your own experience and see how it feels to be an artist of this city. We will draw in my neighborhood in Kreuzberg near the Oberbaum-Bridge. There we will be inspired by the special atmosphere. As you draw and look closely, you will notice that you are in direct contact with the place and the people around you. In doing so, I can draw attention to special places and tell stories from my own history during and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Depending on the weather we will draw under the free sky or we go to one of the numerous cafes nearby. With the resulting pictures you can document the Berlin visit in a highly individual way and create your special drawn travel diary. In this way, you can take home unique pictures and impressions and send them to family and friends.

Karen

Hi, I'm Karen. I live and work for more than 20 years as an artist and illustrator in Kreuzberg and love Berlin. I make art and children's books and discover the city with color and paper new again and again. Because I know the city long time and have been drawing since my childhood I want to invite you to paint your own picture of Berlin with my help. You don't need to be an artist, because I like to show you the basics and techniques in drawing so that you can paint an individual motif from the environment.

Where you'll be

We will explore the surroundings of the Oberbaum-Bridge, especially Kreuzberg. Here we'll draw what inspires us. This area is very special, because east and west were separated here until 1989 and a part of the original Berlin wall is still there. Today it's a peaceful place where two creative and artistic districts meet - the bridge is the symbol for their connection. All in all it's a place with a very inspiring charisma and with many stories.
