What you'll do
I will take you to interesting parts of the historical city where we will do Urban Sketching, with ink and watercolor. I will guide you in a different way of observing the world around you, to explore your creativity even if you have never drawn or paint before. I will tell you about the architecture and history of the buildings we sketch, and tell you more about other places we pass on the way to our next sketching spot. We'll do special exercises that will help you feel relaxed and enjoy the whole experience. At the end I will give personal feedback and if it's a group there will be group dynamic as well. I put together groups for more interaction but individual experience is available too, and you can also book a private experience for your group.
I'm a local Mexican Visual Artist and Architect, fluent in English and Spanish. I'm a traveler and a sketcher. I live in the most amazing city and I'd like to take you on a wonderful experience of art, architecture and sketching discoveries. I want to show you San Miguel and tell you about its history. I teach art in a variety of techniques as well as meditation. I do workshops on urban sketching, contemplative art, and emotional balance. I have a BA in Visual Arts, a BA in architecture, a Masters in Psychology and I'm a certified Meditation and Cultivating Emotional Balance teacher.
