Draw with Wine
Drawing and watercolor session on the esplanade of the emblematic São Jorge Cinema founded in the 1940s and overlooking Avenida da Liberdade, built in 1764 by the architect Reinaldo Manuel, and later arranged in the style of the French Boulevard - Passeio Publico, with beautiful gardens and water fountains.
Get to know the bustling life of the avenue and the movement of a cafe through the design and try to take a closer look at what you don't see at first glance.
At each session an observation exercise will be proposed and the possibility to explore painting with wine will be offered.
Sessions are weekly on Wednesdays from 6 pm to 8 pm in September and October.
