Shapes in Nature

Ref: 2449

Spend time drawing outside this summer, studying nature’s many forms and patterns.

In Week 1, the afternoon will begin indoors with an introduction to some basic drawing techniques which will allow you to ‘draw what you see’. We’ll then head oputside to sketch the beautiful summer displays at Jubilee Flower Park, Lerwick. 

In Week 2, we’ll work further with our sketches, experimenting with composition, abstraction and collage to make images which explore both the orderly and dynamic in nature. 

Suitable for all levels of drawing ability. Please bring pencils and/or pens and any other portable materials that you like to use, and also a camera if you wish to take photographs for your collage. Please dress appropriately for the weather, bringing extra layers should the day turn cold, sun protection, a drink if you wish, and something comfortable to sit on for working outdoors.

There is an additional £2.50 for paper, payable to the tutor.
