The workshop of the famous German artist took place in Moscow, in the The Hangar of salvation emergency center for homeless people. Being mentored by Olivier Kugler the students practiced in drawing trying to understand the nature of each visitor of the center in order to depict them fast and fairly.
Exploring such topical issues as homelessness, particularly focusing on the problem of homeless citizens of London, Kugler considered the workshop as propitious experience for young illustrators. All the sketches will be exposed at the exhibition organized by The Hangar of Salvation emergency center.

Olivier Kugler says: "I think the workshop went quite well. Even though it only lasted two hours the young artists had the opportunity to draw on location whilst getting first hand insight into the lives of less fortunate and extremely vulnerable people of their society. I had the impression that the homeless people enjoyed sharing their experiences with us and that they appreciated the attention and the artist's interest in their circumstances".
