Belmond El Encanto Hotel & Spa

Join Santa Barbara artist and architect Sandra Vlock of Studio Vlock for a conversation and group experience on sketching as a creative visual journal. The artist will speak to capturing the moment in the mind’s eye and translating it to the page. These marks on paper are the through-thread of discovery–a way to take it all in. Participants will have an opportunity for one-on-one interaction with the artist. No experience is necessary!

Since its beginning, El Encanto – meaning ‘The Charm’ – has been known as an alluring oasis for Hollywood’s luminaries, as well as artists, writers, and most recently, creative technologists looking to retreat to Santa Barbara. These picturesque scenes inspired the small but perfectly formed Plein Air art movement, whose artists traveled here during the 1920s to capture the mountain and oceanic vistas on their canvases, establishing El Encanto’s enduring place in creativity.
