Urban Sketching in France

18.09.2023 - 19.09.2023 Languedoc-Roussillon | Ian Fennelly sketching, urban 160 GBP

Join Urban Sketchers instructor and inspirational artist Ian Fennelly to sketch in and around the beautiful historic city of Narbonne!

Narbonne is situated in the Aude département of Occitanie – also referred to as Languedoc!  This beautiful Roman city has narrow cobbled streets, Haussmann-style architecture, a majestic cathedral, tree-lined promenades lined with cafés, a fantastic indoor food market (voted France’s best in 2022!), and the Canal de la Robine which runs through its center on its way to the Mediterranean.

Via public transport, you can reach Narbonne via the following airports – Béziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Toulouse, or Montpellier.  Narbonne train station is extremely central and a 5-10 short walk from the heart of the city center.  The rail routes through Narbonne include the TGV service to Barcelona and the high-speed trains between Bordeaux and Marseille.

Ian’s workshops will take place Monday to Friday and you can join for the full week for £400. Closer to the date it may be possible to join for just one or two days, subject to availability.  The choice of sketch locations will include urban scenes and coastal, rural, and village views.
