Greetings from Rotterdam, Jeffrey de Bruin


What you need to know

The first thing you need to know is: You don't need any drawing experience! I draw Schiedam is suitable for all drawing levels. I will help you. I will give advice and show easy and somewhat more difficult options.


What we will do

We walk approximately 2.5 kilometers in the center of Schiedam. We pass several beautiful places to draw your own personal large "Greetings from Schiedam postcard". Discover the city in a different way. Not just wandering around, but really stopping to draw what you see. A relaxed experience in a beautiful and peaceful city.

We start with a Polaroid of you and place it in the middle of a sheet of A4 size paper. Around the Polaroid we draw typical items from Schiedam such as: windmills, gin glasses, fish, ornaments, images of burner men, bicycles and decorative elements from nature. We draw in a simple and fast way. I give advice for "Handlettering" (writing in a nice way).

Ultimately you have your own handmade "Greetings from Schiedam postcard". You can take a photo and post it on social media, you can sent it to friends or family or take it back home as a reminder of your afternoon, drawing in Schiedam.


Where the experience takes place

We visit beautiful well-known (and less well-known) locations in the center of Schiedam. There is space to sit and there are interesting subjects to draw. Most places have sun (if there is!) and shade.


Starting point I draw Schiedam

  • We start at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, on the Hoogstraat 112. You can wait outside on one of the red benches in front of the main entrance.
  • The starting point is close to Schiedam station and also close to the parking garage "De Nieuwe Passage".
  • You can safely leave your bike in front of the museum.

It was nice to explore a part of the city in a special way with a group. No long stories that you have forgotten by the next day. But by drawing in certain places, you look better and it stays longer in your memory. Jeffrey had prepared the afternoon well and gave good directions. It was a very pleasant experience. – Gerard Touw

I already knew Schiedam, but not in this way! We really had a lot of fun drawing. And thanks to Jeffrey’s explanation we could be proud of the end result. Well arranged, nice route and a pleasant spot in the museum to finish the postcard. Also recommended if you’re already familiar with Schiedam. – Miryam van Es

Do you prefer to draw more modern architecture? I also give a drawing tour in Rotterdam. This modern city is less than 15 minutes away from Schiedam.
