SATURDAY: Sketch Machu Picchu


Hosted by Alan Wernecke

Machu Picchu is a 15th century Inca citadel built on a mountain ridge in southern Peru.  It was established at 8,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by tropical rainforest. Unknown for centuries to outsiders, the fabled city was rediscovered in 1911 by Hiram Bingham and introduced to the rest of the world through the pages of the National Geographic magazine. Today it remains the most familiar ikon of Inca civilization. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983.

Morning Sketch:  We will explore the ruins of Machu Picchu, its surrounding landscapes and some of the sacred sites within the city.

Afternoon Sketch:  We will sketch ancient Inca artifacts - metalwork, ceramics and textiles. The Incas created some of the finest works in pre-Colombian America, producing items in gold, silver, copper, bronze, platinum and precious stones.



There are no fees. All drawing skill levels are welcome
