Levels taught:
**I will be sending out a material list prior to our lessons.

Each student is different and unique so classes will be adjusted to each of you.
The following is a guideline for us.

We will begin the class with an introduction to the subject matter where I will demonstrate my process and thought into the drawing. After this useful introduction, you will be the one drawing and learning! I will be there through the process guiding you.
First, we will focus on studying how to draw what you see. We will work on perception through geometric shapes. After a few months with life still models and objects, we will start on figures and portraits.

Our training together will focus on:
-Understanding drawing tools and materials.
-Approaching the drawing with simple geometric shapes.
-Acquisition and development of reflective habits and representative skills.
-Develop the capacity for immediate acquisition (notes and sketches).
-Initiate tonal and chiaroscuro assessment studies.
-Develop your own speculative and analytical guidelines from the object/model.
-Introduction to knowledge and experimentation of drawing techniques adapted to personal expression.

About Adela H.

Hey there!

My name is Adela and I can't wait to start this journey with you!

I am from Spain and I grew up surrounded by art, culture, amazing food, a supportive family and riding horses. After graduating with a thesis in painting in Madrid, I moved to San Francisco to pursue my Masters of Fine Arts in Acting.

Drawing and painting have always been a form of connecting and expressing myself. It is probably one of the best feelings ever. Once you jump in it is quite hard to stop! It is fascinating how your brain starts functioning in a different way when involved in a creative process.

I am a fine artist and an actress, and I strongly believe that no matter where we come from we all have a space in the world, and in the arts.

Hope to see you soon!
