Wat je gaat doen

"As has been said, you begin with drawing."- - CENNINO CENNINI
Anyone can learn to draw. It is a matter of acquiring a series of finite skills that then have infinite applications. Once these skills have been mastered they can then be applied in any way the artist envisions.

In this figure drawing course, we will convene at my studio, located directly beside the infamous Fabrica La Aurora full of art galleries. We'll have coffee snacks waiting for you, in addition to your own sketch paper and all the basic drawing materials you'll need.

We will begin with a drawing demo that will introduce drawing techniques and explain the many ways we can wield our tools at hand. Our experienced models have a repertoire of dynamic poses, and with the first series of short poses we’ll cover how to conjure up gestures and shapes with simple lines. After breaking down the complex human figure into simple bite-sized shapes we move on to longer poses and learn about proportions and time-tested ‘rule-of-thumbs’ regarding anatomy. Finally, we move on to several longer, 15/20 minute poses where we’ll have more time to dive into rendering the tones and values of your drawings in order to capture the powerful form of light!
Other things to note
You may get your hands dirty from the charcoal dust! We’ll have all the supplies necessary.

San Miguel de Allende is a city for artists! This experience aims to bring out the artist within you - whether it be a vacationing creator or a curious beginner.

I studied the method of the masters in Florence, Italy at the rigorous and beautiful Angel Art Academy. There I also took intensive workshops on Caravaggio’s chiaroscuro technique. I completed the ‘Charles Bargue’ drawing course famous for training Picasso, Van Gogh, & Geromê. At the academy we drew first in graphite and worked from the model daily, 5 days a week for an entire year. Followed by another year drawing the figure every day but in charcoal instead. I learned how to gain command of shapes, anatomy, proportions and tonal rendering.

Charmed by the street leading up to this awe inspiring mansion, I was welcomed into this magical world of creativity and joy. Santiago's love for art and his deep knowledge were evident from the discussions, instructions, and guidance. This experience is not to be missed while in San Miguel. If your soul needs some inspiration or healing, treat yourself to this opportunity.

Santiago is an exceptional artist and teacher. The studio space is unbelievably beautiful, set on the side of a hill, overlooking town. This was my first time taking a figure drawing class since college, and Santiago did an excellent job teaching us the basics, from quick gestural drawings, to more in depth shading and line work. No matter what your skill level, I can’t recommend this class enough. I hope to return soon!

I’m really honored to have shared this experience. I had not drawn figure in a long time and Santiago made me feel very welcome and offered help without me feeling strange or like I was not “getting it” ... - his knowledge on art and drawing is palpable and he is more than genuinely happy to share this love. I would do this type of experience with Santiago again.

You have to do this! It was fabulous for two reasons: the quality of teaching and the “mansion” where it was taught. I’ve been to many life drawing sessions, but Santiago taught me more in 2.5 hours than I learned in all the rest combined. The model was also one of the best I’ve ever drawn. A fire dancer in his “real” life, he was able to strike beautiful poses during which he held perfectly still. The house was worth the money all by itself. The owner is an architect who managed to make the house look hundreds of years old and each room was sensational. The house perches above the city and twists and turns around it’s rocky site, with bird’s eye views of San Miguel from nearly every space. Collections of art, rustic furniture and textiles fill every room. Absolutely sign up for this, no matter what your skill level or even if it’s your first time drawing. Santiago is an Italian trained artist who tells you exactly what you need to know to get to the next level. He was super friendly and welcoming. I’m planning to take more lessons from him.

Santi’s figure drawing class takes place in John’s self-designed, mind-blowing home: several stories of dark wood, art pieces, mosaic, balcony gardens with views of the entire city, two unusually beautiful and friendly cats (and I say this as a cat person), and a room containing a typewriter that former poet laureate Billy Collins once used. John is a gracious host and obviously happy for opportunities to give tours of his beloved masterpiece of a home. The art class itself takes place in a cozy studio full of paintings, easels and the smell of fresh brewed coffee that will make you feel like a true bohemian. Santi is a patient, eloquent, gentle instructor. I warned him ahead of time that I had no figure drawing experience and not to expect much. But after spending an hour with his hands-on attitude that managed not to stifle my freedom and creativity, and the poses flawlessly maintained by the lovely and talented model, I was shocked to end up with some drawings I’m genuinely proud of. This is a great class for artists of any skill level (including total beginners) and the environment is truly beautiful, inspiring, comfortable, and special.
