Two weeks intro to sketching and watercolor plein air

Image
We love to receive our participants’ suggestions, and add new programs to our existing classes and workshops. As some of you have mentions, one week of sketching and painting is not enough, since San Miguel de Allende has so much to offer. And one month may be a long time for some. So we created a new 2 workshop. This is ideal for beginner to intermediate artists who want to build the habit of urban sketching and plein air watercolor painting. During the first week we'll focus on understanding the principles of sketching, then practicing it around town. We noticed that are many interested in sketching but all the sketch crawls are for individuals who already know how.   So we created an introductory program to take the fear out of sketching. Second week is focused on introduction to watercolor plein air. You will introduce you to the basics of watercolor, and then the rest of the week we'll paint out and about the studio. The cost is $750 USD for the t

Would you like to capture the moment in your sketchbook, during a vacation or an ordinary day? It will enhance your travel experience; give you confidence and inspiration as an artist. As a child did you use to make fast sketches with no concern or self judgment? Just for fun! Have you promised yourself for years, that some day you'll make time for art in your life? Are you a painter who never took an art or drawing classes? Do you wander if drawing/sketching would bring a new dimension to your art? Did you use to draw but got so involved with the technology that the computer offers that you lost touch with the joy of sketching with a pen or pencil? We created this art vacation for you and we made it so affordable  that it's no excuse not to say YES! With experience guidance from me Cristiana and from Fernando Gonzalez, both painters teaching from 1989, learn the art of “seeing” and transport the world around you into a quick sketch. If you are an artist at
