We will be meeting in Hackney Wick Station, venture through the neighborhood, after that we will go to my art atelier in Cell Studio and start the workshop! To break the ice I will show you my discipline and my paintings as well as work from other artists - always good to have some context! After that you will choose an image you like - maybe you took it during our walk, or during your visit to London - and I will teach you some easy drawing techniques for you to be able to start your adventure as an artist. As it is a workshop we will be able to adapt to each student level and the classroom will not be more than 5. Drawing styles we can explore: 1. Black Ink (Asian influence) 2. Fashion illustration (marker pen) 3. Collage & pencil 4. Freestyle (for kids) ;) This experience is perfect for couples, groups of friends and why not - a rainy day in London. What better way to weather the storm than in an artist studio doing some crafts. Tea & cookies will be served PS: Food recommendations will be shared too!
I am a visual artist and content creator with an art studio in Hackney Wick, one of the most exciting areas in London full of art and creativity! I have over 10 years of experience as an artist, costume designer and illustrator. With two BA's one in Fine Arts and the other in Fashion, I finished my studies with a MA in Photography. Lucky enough for me, I can be creative in all facets of my life and I love teaching - especially those that think they are not talented drawing/painting. I am from Malaga (Spain) originally myself and I particularly love this quote from Pablo Picasso - also born in Malaga- "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." When I share and spent time in workshops I always learn as much from my students as they learn from me! I am all about collaborating & sharing!
As this is a workshop, we will spend time in the Art Studio, although a neighborhood walk is also part of the experience.
