DRAWING & SKETCHING IN THE CITY WORKSHOP
Sunday 14th June from 10.00am - 4.00pm
at venue to be confirmed
“A drawing can show more than simply what something looks like. It can tell stories of the places you have been to and the things you have seen. It can record moments, objects or scenes that you want to remember.” - Matilda Tristram.
Using a travel sketchbook we will record our visits to various indoor and outdoor locations across Edinburgh using a diverse range of drawing and sketching materials, methods and techniques. We will build enough confidence to use our sketchbooks to draw anything, anywhere at any time!
This course will encourage us to take notice of our surroundings and make a visual record of the city, including architecture, human figures and green spaces, through observational drawing.
To get the most out of this course it is preferable to have some previous drawing experience; most importantly though, students should enjoy the experience of drawing and be ready to experiment and have fun!
Materials required are small and easily transportable.
