More About This Experience

The most basic art form and one of the oldest forms of art, the pencil is the undisputed elder in the art world, not only helping to lay the foundation for almost every piece of art, whether its a painting, sculpture, carving or just simply concept sketches. It is itself an art form too, being the perfect instrument to bring out depth, gradient and complex lighting all in one colour. Try learning it for yourself under the tutelage of Mr Svay Em, one of the most talented artists in Cambodia fiercely passionate to his craft. Learn what renaissance artists practiced most many years ago drawing still life or pick up sketching for faces, either of which will surely challenge you and delight your senses.

Loved this - a really authentic and down to earth experience and a wonderful contrast to seeing the Siem Reap big ticket attractions. I got to create a very good sketch (even if I say so myself!) and is a lovely way to remember the friendliness of the people and the amazing place that is Cambodia. ... Read more

This was my second course with backstreet Academy.. I did their pottery class in Phnom Penh too. Both experiences were perfect! Personally, what I enjoyed the most from these classes was that I got to learn about the people and their daily lives through the perspective of artists and not tourist/tou... Read more
