Sketch Spain! 2019
Be prepared to enjoy everyday the vibrancy of life and cultural richness of the most attractive cities in Catalonia and Spain: Imagine sketching and walking around with a local exclusive guide in Barcelona, Valencia and Sevilla.
Every day we will visit famous and iconic places sketching the legendary streets, beaches squares, patios and plazas that make Spain such a sought after destination for tourist and sketchers alike. If you are a sketcher, companion, a modernist romantic, a lover of colour or ancient cultures or, even if you have not sketched before this is a tour for you. This tour is specifically designed to allow you time with a small likeminded group, but also ‘own time’ to explore as you wish.
Plenty of time for sketching, chatting, laughing, exploring, making new friends and immersing yourself in this warm, relaxed region of Spain.
We do not forget how important is to dive in the rich flavours of the Spanish cuisine and its world famous wines. Tapas, regional dishes of meats, seafood, vegetables, sweet treats and…paellas, in the original birthplace, will be just a sample of the menus we will taste.
Your Tour Director
Amelia will be our tour director. She is from Barcelona with a wide experience traveling every year around Barcelona primarily and the rest of others cities and regions of Spain as well. She speaks not only English but also Catalan, Spanish and other regional dialects, like Valencian (used in Valencia) and Andalusian (spoken in Sevilla).
She is a sketcher and a photographer, so she knows the best views and places to get amazing perspectives and incredible scenes. Also, interested in history and culture, she knows in depth the where and who are key in all those countries and cities we are going to live in during 12 days.
And last but not least, cuisine, food and wines are her other passions, so you will be always well recommended about where to go and what to taste during our day by day discovering walks.
Your Sketch Tutor
Tony McNeight will be the inspiring Mentor of this Sketching Tour who is going to give us Daily Sketching Tutorials to help you capture all this magic environment and experiences.
You will be amazed at how much you can achieve when the right tutor looks after you. This small group size creates always such a special bond that everybody is learning and improving their sketching technics while developing each own styles. There is no better gift to bring back home to remember these days forever.
