Barcelona sketching with an architect

Barcelona, Spain

Experience hosted by Omar

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

What you'll do

This experience will be the perfect mix of Barcelona stories, urban drawing, watercolor sketches, and tips and tricks, and it will give you an insight into Barcelona and its history. We will visit the most beautiful places in the El Born district. With its streets, facades, squares, and market, the neighborhood is a great place to find inspiration and the biggest creative community in Barcelona. We will move throughout El Born, discovering the colors, the textures, and the usages of watercolor. Don't worry, you don't need experience, as I'll guide you step-by-step. When we finish, we will go to a bar in the area to share one drink and show our final drawings. You'll be able to take home your finished piece. All the material for the experience will be provided, thus you don't need to bring or know anything—only your intention to discover one of the most attractive cities in the Mediterranean.
Other things to note
I'll provide paper, but I recommend you bring a small sketchbook in case you need more. I also recommend sunscreen.

I am an architect and industrial designer currently living in Barcelona to complete my studies on history in architecture. I have a passion for drawing, painting, and tattoos. I have my own tattoo-painting atelier, and the streets and Barcelona, in particular, provide incredible inspiration for the art and the design.

Omar is a talented artist with an obvious passion for his art and a profound skill in teaching what he knows about drawing and painting. Also Omar is inspiring and encouraging when it comes to your own drawing skills so no need to feel intimidated by his technique and expression style! Super empathetic and grounded showing a genuine interest in you as a person. Anyone who wants more than just the tourist experience of Barcelona should definitely spend some time with Omar.

To make watercolor sketching with an architect in Barcelona was a very original experience for me. Omar shared his knowledges not only about the watercolor technics but also about the city, the structure and the architecture, and his live in Barcelona. It was a good conversation. He also mentioned how we can improve our sketchs. It was great and very interesting! I’ve learnt a lot during this experience. Thank you Omar!
