Overlooking the Loire river, the Château de Saumur is a striking medieval castle with a museum displaying archaeological finds, ceramics and tapestries.

For this sketching break we’ll be based in the heart of the city (near the tourist information office). We’ll start by getting to grips with some of the basics of sketching on location – ideal for beginners or a great refresher if you’ve already got some drawing or painting experience.  We’ll be discovering the city through our sketches, learning a whole pack of tips and tricks about drawing architecture, adding people to your drawings and use of colour for drama!

I recommend a central location such as
Best Western Adagio Saumur
Hotel Le Londres
Kyriad Saumur Centre
