It's sketching time again. This time I am doing figures. People are always on the go, so I have to be quick enough to catch them in one position.

Twice a week I come to Kidongo Chekundu Mental Hospital for an arts therapy. I spend two hours drawing with a small group of men and women and I am always amazed by their wonderful results.
We work in a room that I decorated together with the group so everybody feels comfortable.

No need for much equipment. I just need pen and paper for a quick sketch of the beautiful trees at Forodhani. Trees are not the only things I like to do sketches of, but find out more today...
