Plein air/Urban sketching

Reading town hall using cola pen


Urban Sketchers is a global community of artists that practice drawing on location in cities, towns and villages they live in or travel to. The Urban Sketchers movement was started on Flickr in 2007 by journalist Gabriel Campanario. In 2009 Campanario established Urban Sketchers as a nonprofit organisation.

If you would like to improve your on-location drawing this day should be idea. Timed to coincide with (hopefully) better weather, we will use the beautiful buildings at Micklems Farm or in Knowl Hill as our muse. Using pen and wash, we will look at composition, working on location, what to put in and what to leave out.

If the weather is inclement, don't worry, we will still be able to find lots of inspiration!

If you are looking at this class you might also be interested in the Pen and wash day or the dip pen day.

Please bring a folding stool or chair, to make your day a little more comfortable.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
