Explore & Draw: Sketching Days


Join us out and about the City for on-location drawing days.

These sessions will help individuals to confidently develop new methods of working in sketchbooks, under the instruction of experienced artists and tutors.  Drawing is an essential tool for gathering material for studio projects and these sessions will allow you to explore new materials and approaches to drawing outside.
At the start of each session the group will be instructed through a series of quick drawing exercises which encourage unselfconscious responses to direct observation. After which the group will split up and individually explore themes that are specific to them. During this time the tutors will be on hand to chat with the students  and give feedback on each individuals approach to sketching.

Guided by a sense of visual curiosity, you will be encouraged to see it, draw it,  and think about it later. Not to worry about finished drawings but rather to gather visual information about the things which are of interest to YOU.

These workshops are suitable for all levels of ability. The days cost £55 and includes basic materials.

We are currently planning exciting locations which will be announced soon….
