Kaj boste počeli

I'm both a long-time Amsterdam resident and an artist. This city has inspired me in many ways and despite its small comprehensive size, it keeps on surprising me with its layers of history and abundant detail. If you like to probe beyond the surface, past what a typical first-time visitor sees, then this experience is for you. I'll take you on a walk through the quieter, less-explored but still central neighborhoods of Amsterdam. Just steps from the main arteries trodden by thousands of passersby, one can find a hidden tranquil square or a quiet alley offering some repose, and a moment for reflection and creativity. You'll turn your experience into an artwork you create yourself—a combination of your thoughts, experiences, and perhaps, your dreams. And, as a bonus, you will receive a sketch made by me!
Other things to note
Bring a camera, water, snacks, and an umbrella or poncho, just in case of rain. You can cancel or postpone free of charge up to 24 hours before the scheduled day and time.

I studied fine arts at Cooper Union in New York and De Ateliers in Amsterdam. I've been hosting walking excursions for the past five years because the city I live in keeps inspiring and fascinating me. I fuse observation and experience through stories, through absorbing history, and through reflection and creativity. I love languages and teach academic English at two Amsterdam universities.

Kje boste

We'll be in one of Amsterdam's quieter yet central districts. We'll take a little stroll and then choose a spot where we'll start sketching. About a half an hour into the sketching session I'll ask whether you'd like to continue working on the same spot or move to another one. It is up to you to decide. Most guests have so far preferred to stay in the same spot, but some more experienced sketchers may choose to move to one or two other spots.

We were looking to do something different, but still captured the spirit of Amsterdam. This was exactly that, an experience with a local artist where he teaches you to make your own portrait in the city. I would reccomend to anyone looking for a cultural experience and something you can take home with you.

I booked this for my daughter, who we surprised with a vacation for her college graduation. She dabbles in painting and sketching, but has no formal art training. This experience is probably best geared for someone with a good understanding of drawing already. My daughter had hoped there'd be a bit more instruction/advice in sketching architecture. Leo does bring all the supplies as advertised and knows some off the beaten path/nice spots for drawing and what drawings are in demand. He did give my daughter one of his finished pieces. Communication with him was good before the experience and he was easy to find at the meeting spot.

I was hoping to view a few places to draw and paint. I'm a quick study and maybe more experienced than some other attendees have been for this experience. Staying in one place for the whole time was a little disappointing. I think over 3 hours, we could have gone to 3 locations with an hour for each one. I also would like to have spent less time drawing what I was going to paint and more time painting or discussing painting techniques for landscape. With such beautiful architecture all around, I would have liked to paint that, or a more scenic site like a bridge, row of houses, or bicycles. So while the experience overall was cool, I guess it was the location and length of time at one spot that I was disappointed in. Since it was listed as a stroll and painting, could have strolled to a couple of places.

It probably wasn't an ideal day since it was raining out and we sat outside to sketch. I haven't drawn for ages so it might have been great to include a brief description of what level of experience was needed. We ended up not taking the entire time - Leo was doing most of the sketching and coloring and I just wanted to cut it short as it wasn't quite the experience I was hoping for. All in all, I'm sure that for anyone that has more experience would benefit from Leo's lesson...I on the other hand wasn't too satisfied with it. A little bit overpriced.

This was exactly what I needed on my journey to Amsterdam. With so many sights to see, activities and people, the experience that Leo helped facilitate really resonated with the vibrant culture that one can find there. We disappeared off the crowded streets and found a quiet bench to sit on while he brought out art supplies to capture the sights in front of us. I believe the guidance that Leo can provide can really be utilized at any level of someone’s experience. I have more experience working with 3D media and he helped me stretch my comfort zone by sketching and using watercolors to interpret the scenery. He has true talent, is informative, creative, worldly, and good-natured. I highly recommend looking in to a walk with Leo while visiting Amsterdam.

We walked to an area of the city I hadn’t visited, slightly off the beaten track. Leo gives great advice / demonstrates things and was very encouraging! He also pointed out and explained the sights, which was lovely as I was on a short visit.
