Travel + Paint
¡Paint Cuba! Image & Word is an immersive art workshop designed for adventurous artists, writers and photographers
Join us for a drawing, journaling and photography trip to Havana and Trinidad, Cuba with award winning artist, teacher, author, Enrique Flores Galbis. Experience the people, arts and the visual poetry of Cuba while creating a treasured memento of a unique journey, a living journal.
Our trip starts with a three-day expertly guided immersion into the rich history of the Architecture of Havana and vital presence of Cuban Art and Music. Then we leave the hustle and bustle of the big city for Trinidad, a beautifully restored colonial town and Unesco World Heritage Site on the southern coast of the island. We’ll settle in to sketch and photograph the colorful colonial buildings, vistas of the mountains and waterfalls while getting around in vintage cars, antique railroad, and horseback. Of course there will be plenty of time to draw and write in our journals
The travel journal is composed of drawings, water media, and written insights set down in real time. It will serve as a means to decipher the complex spirit of a people, record the visual poetry of the city and countryside, as well provide source material for future art work. Journals are also highly portable allowing us to travel light.
This is an intensive travel workshop with the aim of refining our drawing, writing, and photography skills while creating an intimate link with the people, places and music of Cuba. There will be daily discussions on the dynamics of using images and words to capture the essence of a scene. The journal size is up to each artist and any media (except oils) is acceptable. Water based media is encouraged.
The trip is conveniently planned around Art Basel Miami.
