What you'll do
Everyone is welcome. We'll meet and start making art within the first five minutes. We will follow a trail to find hidden parts of Rio to sketch, draw, and make notes in our journals. We'll explore buildings and the surrounding environment. As a fun art warmup, we'll sketch thumbnails for 15 minutes. Then we'll choose a location to draw for 45 minutes. I will give you tips and fun techniques for drawing and sketching. Then we'll walk streets filled with beautiful historic buildings, and sketch the history and activity of Rio life. We'll make as much mixed media art as we can for 15 minutes. For the next hour, you can apply your new skills to create a souvenir piece. Finally, we'll relax and discuss the day and our artwork over a drink and light snack.
I have been an artist & designer all my life with years of experience teaching arts, design, screen and textile printing, sketching and paint techniques to mixed media. I ran my fashion label store mainly worn by film & pop stars in Notting Hill London for over 10 years. My studies in architecture both in London & here in Rio, include fine art work in Rio´s Belas Artes Museu.

Where you'll be
We'll be in the center of Rio, the historic and cultural backbone of the city. The streets are filled with visual gems, making city spaces seem like lost stage sets. You only need imagination to hear music and dance. I love to sketch and keep journals of these moments in Rio—mapping my pulse of the city.
