explore your senses!

Armed with oilpastels and a sketchbook we will explore the beautiful nature in Drenthe under guidance of contemporary artist and teacher Lydia Jansen.

We will harvest our senses to put them to paper. You will come home with a little sketchbook full of drawings, and empty head and a new way of exploring the beautiful world around you!



A hike of approximately 5 km in which we will stop and look to sketch our experiences out. After and during the hike there will be coffee, tea and some home-made sweets.
