STORY: These artists are giving new life to Cairo’s landmarks through their canvas
A new tour allows participants to learn about the city’s historic locations
while sketching their beauty
(Enas Omara, Artist)
"The tour is wonderful because it allows you to visit places that you might paint but you know nothing about its history or what events happened in them, you just paint them because you like them. But through this initiative, you paint these sites while learning about their history. It is a cultural and artistic experience in one."
The project has grown in popularity and organizers plan to expand it around Egypt
(Mohammed Hamdi, Tour organizer and art professor)
"History by itself can be dry or boring, because it consists of dates and names of countries, princes, and sultans. But when we present it through this lovely medium, it attracts a lot of attention."
