Teaching (and learning)

Drawings made while teaching the course "Drawing the City" about which I blogged some weeks ago. Every lesson consists of about half an our in the classroom and 2 and a half hours of drawing from life. I always make the same exercises I propose to the the students.

In this case, identifying simple volumes...

...before drawing architecture (this is a crossroads in Poblenou 100 meters far from my house).

Here we went again to see a rehearsal of the Castellers de Sants for drawing people.
Teaching at Sant Lluc #3 drawing people

For the next drawings we went to the Parc de la Ciutadella and the idea was to draw without lines, just color stains were allowed.

Drawings from other people at the course can be seen on this flickr group.


  1. I wish I could do classes with you, they sound so interesting!

    Love your sketches too - all so different yet excellently done.

  2. Fantastic architecture lesson !
    (and i know what i say)
    Many thanks, Miguel

  3. love the point about blocking in volumes. Seems simple once someone points it out, but would have taken me a million years to arrive at on my own.
