Rijks Museum bans cameras but encourages the visitors to sketch the artworks

The famous Rijks Museum of Amsterdam has just banned cameras and photographs, but instead encourages the public to draw and sketch the artworks! An new amazing and innovative concept designed to motivate visitors to fully appreciate the artworks and paintings presented, instead of stupidly taking pictures without even really looking at them. For this operation entitled StartDrawing, the Rijks Museum is offering sketchbooks and pencils to visitors, but also easels, and even drawing classes. A brilliant idea!
