11 : 30 | Ahmedabad
Join us for a Reading Session on ‘Vincent’s Books: Van Gogh and the Writers Who Inspired Him’ by Mariella Guzzoni. The session will be conducted by Dhaivat Panchal. Dhaivat is an Architect and co-founder of Urban Sketchers Ahmedabad.
In this interactive session, participants will engage with the selected excerpts of the book and try to unfold the life of Vincent, his journey as a self-taught artist, and trace the path he carved against all the odds. By tracing this path one can not only find reflections of one’s own artistic journey but one becomes more aware, sensitive, and attentive towards one’s own experiences and life; not only verbally but also by exploring the passion and love for life through drawing and some fun activities.
Date: 18 June 2023 | Sunday.
Time: 11.30 am onwards.
For ages: 15 years and above.
