Service Description

Join our tutor in Princes Street Gardens to draw Edinburgh Castle, Monet style, in the second of this series of three sessions. This course is suitable for any child of any proficiency aged 12+. (The reason for this is due to being in a relatively busy public space, and to have gone to the toilet before meeting at 10am therefore to minimise need to during the session) Our series of three sessions to draw Edinburgh Castle can be booked individually or as a set of three to afford children the opportunity to draw the same subject but in different styles of Impressionism and Pointillism in the style of Cezanne the first week and Georges Seurat week 3. Morning Structure: 10am meeting point 10.20 am settle to find a place close to entrance of The Mound 10.30 am start drawing after some instructions from Helen 11.30 am stop for a break of juice and snacks 11.45 am 1pm Complete your pastel drawing At the start of the morning, children will have reference images placed beside them for guidance while they look up to the castle and draw at the same time. If any parent cannot stay beside their child for the three hours for any reason, our assistant will be able to escort children should they need to go to the toilet. She will take them to the free toilet in the middle of the second building of The National Gallery on The Mound, a very short 5-7 minute walk away. Each tutor will have the contact numbers of every parent should they need to contact you for anything at all if you do not stay for the session.
