Dessin la Mer offers fun trips on the lagoon at l'Hermitage, where you can learn how to draw and how to protect the underwater environment.
The idea is to draw under the water on a drawing board wearing a mask and a snorkel. The result is quite surprising.
First you will observe the seabed under the water and learn the name of each species you see and then together you will choose a place which reflects the diverse fauna and flora.
A drawing board is provided for each participant, to recreate their vision of the seabed in colour.
The workshop is open to everyone from beginners to experienced artists. It takes place over one session and lasts 2 hours with 10 minute breaks every half hour on the beach, to review all your artistic endeavours and give practical safety advice about how to protect the underwater fauna and flora.
Dessin la Mer has a team of two qualified supervisors specialising in art and marine biology, who organise this fun trip.
At the end of the workshop participants will leave with their own personal drawing board as well as a Gopro video montage of the trip to keep as a souvenir of this half day.
Equipment to bring: masks, snorkels, swimming shoes and wetsuits.
