We will be meeting in Lewisham, venture through the neighbourhood, after that we will go to my art atelier home in the area and start the workshop!

To break the ice I will show you my discipline and my paintings as well as work from other artists - always good to have some context! After that you will choose an image you like - maybe you took it during our walk, or during your visit to London - and I will teach you some easy drawing
techniques for you to be able to start your adventure as an artist. As it is a workshop we will be able to adapt to each student level and the classroom will not be more than 5.

Drawing styles we can explore:
1. Black Ink (Asian influence)
2. Fashion illustration (marker pen)
3. Collage & pencil
4. Freestyle (for kids) ;)

This experience is perfect for couples, groups of friends and why not - a rainy day in London. What better way to weather the storm than in an artist studio doing some crafts. This experience is perfect for offices and teams - can be delivered in the other spaces.

Tea & cookies will be served
PS: Food recommendations will be shared too!

Other things to note
This is a space to have fun! To be creative we have to be relaxed, let go. Leave the idea of pretty or ugly at the door, join us and enjoy without prejudice being creative.

I am a visual artist and content creator with an art studio home in Lewisham, one of the most vibrant areas in London full of creativity!

I have over 10 years of experience as an artist, costume designer and illustrator. With two BA's one in Fine Arts and the other in Fashion, I finished my studies with a MA in Photography.

Lucky enough for me, I can be creative in all facets of my life and I love teaching - especially those that think they are not talented drawing/painting. I am from Malaga (Spain) originally myself and I particularly love this quote from Pablo Picasso - also born in Malaga- "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."

When I share and spent time in workshops I always learn as much from my students as they learn from me! I am all about collaborating & sharing!

Alicia is an amazing educator, she is personal, friendly and welcoming! We had a quick stroll around Hackney Wick where she pointed out buildings and artworks of interest + a brief history of the area. I have no background in design/drawing - her approach / technique is easy to follow and intuitive. I was really excited by the drawing I made, inspired to further the interest with a large project - Alicia would be a fantastic resource for making that happen will definitely be seeing her again - Highly recommended!

Alicia was extremely friendly to message and ask questions. I bought this experience as a Christmas gift for my brother. She sent me some lovely photos of him working the following day and the course was a truly memorable experience for him. Thank you :)

Alicia’s workshop was a fantastic! As someone who likes to draw, it was a great way to explore other creative ideas. Alicia is a great teacher - I really appreciated her tips and advice. Also loved her studio space and the street art tour she gave.

I have no design or drawing background and was drawn to this experience out of curiosity. I really enjoyed the short walk around the area which is eclectic and edgy. It was interesting to see an area that is so different to anything I’ve experienced before. The experience with Alicia was informative and enjoyable - she enabled me to create two artworks. The other person in the group had some drawing background but Alicia’s approach ensured we were able to work on our own thing yet be part of a comfortable group experience. Well worth it!
