They cover our initiative
« The good idea to stay busy during quarantine«
« You don’t know how to pass the time in confinement? Why not develop an artistic talent? Whether you already have this talent or don’t yet know it, go to www.sketchyourwindow.org. In confinement, everything we see from the outside world goes through our windows. A painter therefore had the good idea to gather us around drawings of windows, gardens, courtyards. On this website, find drawings posted by many Internet users and post your work! »
