I'm an architect and I've been teaching sketching and architectural history in Universidad de Buenos Aires for almost 10 years. I find sketching to be a great and fun way to discover a new city.

Eu me senti à vontade e pude desfrutar da experiência mesmo sendo amador e com habilidades limitadas de desenho. Martin me encorajou a valorizar meu estilo de desenho e abriu portas para o uso de novas técnicas. Foi atencioso o tempo todo, muito paciente e nos forneceu todo o material necessário. Meu filho pequeno me acompanhou na experiência e também gostou muito. Gracias, Martin!

Buenos Aires zeichnerisch zu entdecken ist wirklich etwas Besonderes. Wir hatten auch Glück mit dem Wochentag: Samstag hatten wir einen guten Blick auf die Straßen rund um den Obelisco ohne dass es überfüllt war. Martin hat mir hilfreiche Tipps in Sachen architektonisches Zeichnen gegeben - vielen herzlichen Dank nochmal!

i have always wanted to try urban sketching- never really knowing where and how to start. there's only so many youtube videos you can watch 😜 and since sketching is a particularly offline activity- i was super happy to find martin's class being offered here. martin is a gentle, easygoing person and very flexible- my son got ill during our stay, and i had to postpone the tour- it was no problem at all! after we met and martin knew what i would like to learn, we picked a spot to start from and i got an introduction/ recap of perspective and how to break down complex structures .i was interested in drawing complex buildings- a perfect pitch for martin - he is an architect and knows his " tools" and techniques! martin is great at explaining and encouraging! we then challenged ourselves with drawing people and another busy street view. and the wonderful surprise: not only did martin bring the necessary supplies- he also meant for me to keep them! so don't hesitate, if you read this and are unsure whether this is the right class- you won't even need supplies! and you will go home with a lovely little leporello of sketches and some fresh ideas and supplies to continue drawing during your stay ❤ i loved it!
