Great City Drawings – level 2

20-05-2021 15:00

Stephen Wiltshire is a famous artist. He is able to draw cityscapes from memory. He has drawn many cities, and at the moment, he is drawing Mexico City. It is his biggest project yet.

He flew in a helicopter over Mexico City for only 30 minutes, and he could draw everything.

Stephen has autism and drawing is how he relaxes.

Difficult words: cityscape (the way a city looks), memory (your thoughts from the past), autism (when your mind takes in information differently).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
