Working Sketchbooks Workshop

Ref: 2405

Whatever your reason for keeping a sketchbook might be, sometimes making a start can be the biggest challenge, especially if you are going to be out in public.

We'll begin in the classroom looking at examples from artists who work in an outside environment. We'll explore some of the techniques we can use when sketching outside, using various materials and considering tone, scale and colour, and will then head out to a nearby location to sketch from life.  If the weather is too bad for outside work, we’ll head to the museum or another public venue to work instead. The content will be slightly different in each session.

Suitable for all levels. Some walking is necessary as the intention is to go out sketching. Bring warm, waterproof clothing (you do get cold outside when you are sitting still), something to sit on for working outside, and a packed lunch.

You may bring a drawing board, if you have one, although these will be provided; and any drawing materials you already have and would like to use. There is a charge of £5 for additional materials, payable to the tutor.
