About the walk

Agra is a treasure trove of visual heritage artefacts. From precious monuments to small flamboyant gates in 15th-century lanes, from tiny circular ladders to long alleviated balconies, this city has been visually rich for centuries. We have learnt in our sketching classes that learning to draw is really a matter of learning to see - to see correctly - and that means a great deal more than merely looking with the eye. Join us on this heritage tour with art experts/artists from the JJ School of Arts, Mumbai, and Lalit Kala Sansthan, Agra, around the old city and explore your visual mindset in the form of live doodling, urban sketching, charcoal drawing or freestyle illustration.

This guided tour is free.
