The Art of Seeing, drawing in the Basilica

Vézelay Basilica Workshop of the Gaze

In-depth visit, the Atelier du Regard offers to those who already know the Basilica to return pencils in hand. To draw or describe: a ray of light, the momentum of a perspective, the detail of an ornament or a sculpture ... An artistic exercise, at the school of the model, to better resonate with the masters of 12th century work.

Come and talk to the artist-builders. A time of exchange between participants will then allow you to cross your eyes and your impressions.


Duration : 2 H15 The preparation and sharing of the experience is done at the Visitor's House. The personal work in the basilica is about ¾ hours.

  • Participation in this workshop requires no special skills in the field of drawing or writing.

  • The Atelier du Regard is very complementary to the Marquee Reading Workshop
