Watercolour workshop- Gaudí and nature

Barcelona, Spain

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Sol

2 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

This watercolour workshop is inspired by nature and modernism, which is what inspires me the most, Gaudí as well... And you, very soon! You will find out what is the relation between nature, art and Gaudí.
First I will show you why nature is our best teacher, then you will experience with watercolours, playing with the different ways to use it and mix it with other agents. And finally you will create your own artwork.
Painting is a way to reflect what we see and feel. I'll teach you the main tips for painting on your own. Then you will be ready to jump right into watercolour technique.
You will enjoy the inspirational and catalán ambient at the coffee shop that I discovered living here (unseen by the touristic main circuit) while you make your own painting and connect with different visions of art and nature.
Other things to note
We'll be in a cozy ambient so the weather doesn't matter. On holidays location may change. Food and drinks are not included. Check my other experience https://www.airbnb.es/experiences/292080

I'm a visual artist from Argentina. I came to Barcelona on a trip and decided to stay in my favourite neighbourhood: Gracia. I've exhibit my work and won art contests. I 've been teaching Arts for the last 9 years in schools and in the University of Arts. Here I am, sharing my passion and doing what I like to do the most.
When I graduated in Visual Arts I did my thesis about how our environment influences us. But it was just a theory! Barcelona changed my life and my point of view radically.
And I´m sure it will change yours too.

Otra clase que hago con Sol, es guay porque aprendo muchos tips que no conocía y me ayudan a tener una técnica más cuidada usando acuarelas, Sol es una persona super amigable y tiene facilidad para hacer la clase entretenida e informativa. Altamente recomendable si estás en Barcelona

I recommend this class - very much so! A wonderful couple of hours with a fantastic and friendly teacher (thanks Sol!) and nice class in a good, sweet location. I have tried watercolor painting in the past and definitely did not succeed. Sol made it aprochable and I left class very glad that I attended this workshop...and with a painting that I am happy with. Again, I recommend this for some nice creative time while you enjoy Barcelona.

Part of the reason we chose to go to Barcelona was for my daughter Mia, who loves to draw and I thought would appreciate the beautiful architecture and art. We took this class expecting to be part of a larger group, but were lucky in that it was just the 3 of us. Sol showed us some samples of things in nature that had inspired Gaudi and different basic watercolor techniques, allowing us to practice a bit on a piece of scrap paper before trying to do something ourselves. I'm no artist and went straight to dark colors (big mistake) but Mia was drawn to a lighter palate and did well and learned a few things, which was what I was seeking. She had a great time and Sol was very patient with her, which I appreciated. Thank you Sol!

I had a fantastic time painting with Sol. She taught me several basic techniques very quickly and then helped me to be bold with my colors. At the end of the session I had a beautiful nature-inspired painting that I did myself! I highly recommend this experience.

Sol was such a great host! She’s knowledgeable but also very natural. It was easy to talk to her and connect even with my lack of art experience. She is like the sun! Thank you again!

I had an amazing time at Sol’s watercolor class! She taught us some new techniques, info about Gaudi and his sources of inspiration, and how to create and be inspired ourselves.
