Intensive Travel Sketching Workshop in Valencia
Form 7 to 10 May 2021
Founded in the 138 BC, Valencia is today one of the most important cities in Spain. Its Roman, Christian and Arab influences are reflected in the architecture and the atmosphere of the city and offer us some magnificent scenes to draw.
This workshop in Valencia is open to people wishing to learn or improve their drawing skills in Urban and Travel Sketching.
It also aims to discover Valencia with a creative and personal approach through drawing.
During this workshop you will learn to develop your sense of observation to depict a bit of everything that surrounds you in your sketchbook: traditional architecture, emblematic buildings and elements of a place, characters, street scenes, details…
We will remind in a playful way some fondamentals of drawing, such as perspective and composition, and we will learn to forget them occasionally to play with the spontaneity of our lines.
We will also explore complementary techniques to drawing such as collage, typography and watercolor.
Observation, experimentation and letting go will be emphasized.
This course will help you acquire the confidence and ease necessary to progress.
