We propose five excursions to different points in the city from which we will each work on our personal landscape characteristics. With a sketchbook as our basic instrument we will observe and understand the surrounding area using pencil, watercolor, acrylics and collage; a sum of visions and sensations.
This workshop will stimulate your creative capacity, your dedication to your own work and provide images and ideas from which to choose subjects in order to define what we will use in the studio. We will make a sketchbook of images, impressions and memories to refer to, like a personal dictionary.
To approach the Barcelona and its city green spaces with our notebooks, as a new way to see through the act of drawing and painting: a fresh new, intuitive approach that lets us then advance in other areas of personal work.
