Where do we meet? A local park where we can draw the wild areas

What will it be like?

We will meet and walk into the wild life areas to draw. We will use drawing materials in a sketchbook. It is a quiet, calming and relaxing experience, being closer to nature and recording what you see and feel. Any rubbish must be taken with you.

Will it still go ahead in the rain, snow, ice, hail and winds?

A message will be advertised to let you know if the weather would spoil the sketching session.

Is this a taught session? There will be guidance with materials but it is about finding your own individual creative flow. I can help with sketching methods but each session will bring more and more confidence and mark making gestures in your sketchbook.

Where will we meet?

At Rotary Way
