Beginner's Drawing Class

Saturday 20 July
El Prado, San Diego - 10am - 2 Hours
Daphne Guzman
In this class, we will explore the basics of drawing and equip you with the skills needed to create beautiful and expressive artwork.

Our experienced instructor will guide you through the fundamentals of drawing, including perspective, proportion, shading, and composition.

We will also be practicing various forms of Mark Making techniques and hopefully will make an empty page less daunting to fill up.

Perfect for complete beginners.
Come along to our meetups to improve your art in a relaxed and social atmosphere, and under the guidance of a professional instructor. Complete beginners to experienced artists all welcome.

Our 2 hour meetups are held in a different location each time, usually outdoors.

Bring your own materials which can be anything from pencils or pastels, to watercolour or oils.

If you are a complete beginner all you need to start are a couple of good drawing pencils, a rubber, and a drawing pad.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to experienced artists. The instructor is there to help everyone.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Title or Location: America's Cup Harbor
Following seven hours of taping out the subject matter, I took the watercolor out to America's Cup Harbor in Point Loma. At 9am I began throwing paint with my 6-inch brush to start a "Stylin' with Blue Tape" demonstration en plein air for the San Diego Watercolor Society Second Saturday Paintout. I always enjoy seeing people's faces as the paint spreads and drips across the 140 Arches Cold Press paper! Came back to the studio and spent another 5 days completing details.Exhibited:San Diego

I enjoy documenting my life in watercolor. I have a few completed watercolor journals. This particular page depicts a time we went on a hike in Crest - a rural mountain community about 20 miles east of San Diego. We were staying in a nearby Airbnb while our house was being renovated. We had no idea these trails existed, and now this illustrated memory will be cherished.

Title or Location: ?Desert Paintbrush?, acrylic on canvas, 11? x 14?
These lovely red flowers are called desert paintbrush. I first learned about them when I was just a boy growing up in New Orleans. I loved all earth sciences, but especially rocks, gems, and flowers. I had a little book that showed different flowers from around the United States and these desert paintbrush were always my favorite. We didn?t have anything like that growing in New Orleans (and it was a terrible place to try to be a rockhound since it?s all delta), but I held out hope that when I g

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Inspiration for this was just flipping through some pictures I took of my garden earlier in the season. I wish the peonies bloomed longer! This painting was done using Chinese colors and brushes on black shuen paper.

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
