Art Workshop with Local Artist Alex

Description

Hi, my name is Alex and I want to take you into the beating heart Mombasa's art scene and share my best advice on how to draw like a professional during my Mombasa art workshop. I am an experienced art teacher and promise that you'll leave as a better artist than when you first showed up for my art class.

During this experience, not only will I teach you about the fundamentals of drawing, but you'll also have the opportunity to learn about daily life in Mombasa from my friends and me. I'll also share more about our community organization's work during this art workshop, such as the dance classes we offer, community football matches, photography workshops, female empowerment initiatives, and our new locally-run podcast station!

Mombasa is one of Kenya's most culturally rich destinations and I look forward to showing my city to you through my eyes!

Reviews

We had the privilege of taking an art class with Alex at Pwani Youth Centre. I am undeniably a terrible artist, but that didn't matter. Alex taught us some of the basics of drawing in a fun way, while also telling stories about life in Mombasa. It was also fascinating to visit the center itself. Alex gave us a tour and offered insight into the wide variety of work taking place at Pwani Youth Network, from dancing to photography to podcasting. The creative energy is insane. If you have a few hours to spare in Mombasa, I fully recommend doing this. You'll have fun and support a good cause in the process.
