Què farem?

We will meet in 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.

On aniràs?

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.

Even if you believe you can't draw a straight line, you will surprise yourself with the wonderful guidance and support from Estaban. The time flew and I learned a lot. It's peaceful in a busy place like San Juan to just be in the moment and see the world with different eyes. Do this for yourself. Just meeting Estaban will be worth the adventure.

We met at a wonderful fountain in Old San Juan. I have read books on perspective and still just scratched my head, not understanding. Esteban was able to share his sketching knowldge using precise steps, first showing me and then letting me try to draw that fountain. After my first attempt, and I do mean attempt, Esteban gave me some pointers (secrets of the trade) and I tried again, surprisingly with a great deal of success. He taught me that drawing with correct perspective is a lot easier than I ever imagined. I really like photography, but like to branch out to, "see things with new eyes." This was great fun and I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to dabble or improve their sketching abilities! Thank you Esteban.

I understand that sketching might not been your "thing", but I can guarantee that this will be one of the best two hours in your trip. We will immerse in the magic of sensing, seeing and narating, thru drawing, your personal experience. The sketches will be a great memory, believe me.
