We will meet ii Plaza Colón in Old San Juan and first of all introduce the concept of sketching, eradicate the fear of error and maybe make the error a style. Sketching may very well be a form of meditation thru contemplation, so I will then talk about how the eye sees, how the brain records and how the hand follows thru. Also, I will explain the difference between pencil and ink, explain the tricks and quickly immerse into sketching. We may also stroll to selected places to see and sketch. Come along on this unique opportunity to startup a new hobby if you are a beginner or do come to continue to master your skills, be that in water color, color pencil or charcoal. You may bring your personal tools and papers.
I am an architecture professor since 1982, have thought in the USA, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Puerto Rico. As a professor, one of my passions is to sketch outdoors, be that nature or architectural wonders. I teach freehand and technical drawing at the university and would love to share the knowledge and the tricks of the trade with the beginner or the experienced. I will talk about the eye and hand connection, how the brain sees and help develop skills to be able to document the surroundings. At the end of the session you will be able to take a unique souvenir of your own.
Paper, pen and pencil
I will select public plazas, architectural gems and beautiful details to draw. This will allow me to recognize strengths and weaknesses to be corrected and to demonstrate that some folks have the ability to focus on the big picture and others on the details.
