Što ćete raditi

No sketching experience required- Beginners, kids & families welcome :)

This experience uncovers the trendy hotspots of Joburg and revisits its rich monuments of old.

We will meet on Fox St near Arts on Main in downtown Johannesburg for an introduction & some warm up sketching exercises as we take in the vibrancy of the various markets and the remodelled architecture of the Maboneng Precinct.

We will then explore Main St- guests get a chance to see the city transform through new developments & get a sense of a genuine Joburg streetscape. Depending on availability we may travel like a local using mini bus taxi.

We will head to the "Rooftop deck", this will provide incredible panoramic views of the city and offer great opportunities to sketch. Several great cafes & surrounding installations within Maboneng Precinct offer a chance to wind down thereafter.

The needs of the group and daily factors means that the experience is always different, whether you have not picked up a pencil since childhood or are a seasoned artist, it is always an adventurous & eye opening way to explore this incredible example of a redeveloping city and its inhabitants & interact with it creatively and imaginatively.

I am a Johannesburg based candidate architect (M.Arch Prof.) motivated by the vivid landscape of its city streets. Sketching is a medium of daily engagement with ones environment and available to all, irrespective of skill level or talent, as a guide and tutor I call upon both my training in analytical sketching and meditation. Meeting and sharing the excitement of the city with an array of guests and creating meaningful experiences I find most fulfilling. Come along for a journey as we discover gems, both old and new while learning together and seeing the city through new eyes.

Really cool experience! Michael is a friendly and outgoing person, who really makes you feel at home. I learned about techniques and the history of thepresinct and buildings. I have already recommended Michael to two of my friends 😊

Michael is a fantastic guide! He is super nice and you know you’ll have a good time even before you start sketching. I am a complete sketching beginner, but that was no problem. He made me practice, showed me what to focus on and really motivated me! I also learned a good deal about Maboneng and was shown buildings from a new perspective and some I hadn’t seen before. Definitely recommend this experience! :)

A great experience to discover Maboneng Precinct with a super friendly and knowledgeable student in architecture. The neighborhood is very nice and safe, you spend a very good time drawing and chatting with Michael in an artsy part of Jozi that is definitely worth having a look at. Totally recommended, especially for a solo traveller like me, as you get to have a long chat with a very interesting local, and for a beginner in drawing too! Thanks Michael, it was a pleasure to have met you. :)

I would highly recommend this! It was such a happy way to spend the morning, and gave me a new perspective on the buildings around Maboneng . I felt at ease and comfortable from the moment we found Michael, who is one of the friendliest people you will ever come across. He was very encouraging and accommodating, which gives this tour an easy-going feel. Thank you, Michael, for such a special Sunday!

My sister went on the trip. She said Michael has incredible insight and made the experience really special. They got to speak about many topics and she learned a lot. He made it comfortable and easy for her to take part and she learnt alot. He was creative and had a wisdom that came through that she really enjoyed. Thanks, Michael for a special trip.

it was a lovely experience for my kids to sketch the beautiful Johannesburg with Michael. he was very flexible and adapted to what interested the kids...after sketching some buildings, we started copying some of the amazing graffiti...we went to an Ethiopian cafe and had lovely coffee while the kids tried to copy some of the Ethiopian paintings in the cafe and the patterns on the roof...then we gave them the 10 Rand banknote and they all drew Nelson Mandela in their own creative way...finally Michael very kindly sketched all of them...we came back with lots of souvenirs that were very personal to this experience...we also bought beautiful beaded animals from the roadside stall...all in all a beautiful experience and totally recomended for kids.
