“The Experience of Drawing” is an activity developed by students, Erasmus students and FAUP alumni.  During the weekend “The Experience of Drawing” will be in the selected spaces of the Open House Porto itinerary. In this action each participant is challenged to draw and to offer, in a spontaneous way, her/his singular draft to the public that is part of the visits, this way making the exercise of drawing a place of meeting and a motive to reach out amongst those that draw and those that visit. In his turn, the visitor is invited to send a digital image of the drawing received ([email protected]), extending this way the sharing and the image collection of the “Experience”. “The Experience of Drawing” aims to contribute for the knowledge of one of the characteristics of the identity of the so-called “Escola do Porto” [Porto’s School]: training in architecture supported by the exercise of drawing.


During the weekend, “The Experience of Drawing” will be in several places of the itinerary but in permanence at the places here indicated.
