The Nagwon mall locates near the Senior Welfare Center of Seoul.
How much they concentrated in drawing!
It was just harmonious to see the exhibiting artist and sketchers to be sketch together.
She showed that standing is one of the most necessary attitudes for sketchers.
She visited the gallery with her mother last day and waited to join this workshop because sketching was her dream.
No more serious than this!
One guy of the guitar shop presented nice music for us.
One senior participant, Mr. Yoo Byung Chul, played his mandolin on the spot between his sketching.
The participants didn't fear coloring even. We praised their use of simple colors in refined and characteristic manners.

She was so glad to meet me because of the same clan "Yoo". She would be my father's generation using the higher generation character 'Geun'. I held her hands as if I saw my aunt. What's interesting was that the mandolin playing man was my same generation with same character 'Byung'. So we laughed saying that we would be brother and sister. Sketching presented another pleasure through communication.
YH Lee presented watercolor portrait to the participating model.
We took a photo after hanging works in this workshop at the gallery where we hung our works. We felt satisfactory at the results we've done together!
The first workshop was held at the Nagwon Musical Instrument Mall. We walked five minutes to the mall which located near the Senior Welfare Center of Seoul talking freely about sketching. They showed strong interest in sketching on the spot. One participants told that he was waiting for this workshop so much and he would join our sketching meetup next month. As you see in the photos all the participants were very sincere and excited in the fact that they tried to do sketching outdoor with artists. By the advance information nobody used photo while drawing. We enjoyed sketching together. After returning to the gallery we hung the results on the wall. How much we felt happy sharing them! We wait for the next workshop.
날이 많이 더우면 밖으로 나가는 것이 걱정스러웠는데 다행히 어제 오늘 많이 시원했어요. 그래도 오늘 비가 오락가락해서 운현궁보다는 낙원 상가로 스케치 장소를 택했습니다. 신청하신 어르신분들과 스케치 장소로 이동하면서 짧은 시간이었지만 그림에 대한 이야기를 나누면서 갔습니다. 그림에 대한 관심이 크신 분들이어서 즐거운 대화가 이어졌어요.
낙원 악기 상가는 쉽지 않은 대상이지만 '내 생애 처음 스케치해본다'는 분들도 자리잡고 '현장에서 직접 보고 그린다'는 원칙에 한치도 어긋남없이 참으로 진지하게 그리셨습니다. 전시 작가님들도 사이 사이 스케치에 분주하셨구요. '옆에서 그리시는 작가님 한마디'에 길을 찾았다는 분도 계셨고 앞으로 모임에 나오셔서 함께 꼭 그리시겠다고 의욕을 보이시는 분들도 계셨어요. 모두가 즐거웠던 1차 워크샵이었습니다. 그분들 그림 보시러 다시 들러주시기 바랍니다.
모두 수고많으셨고 감사합니다!
