New outdoor sketching sessions starting this Wednesday the 9th of May

Throughout the summer Jason is offering sketching and painting lessons out of doors.  This is your opportunity to work alongside Jason, who will demonstrate methods of capturing the scene for you to try. 

Many of us would love to take our sketch books and draw when we are out and about, but feel self-conscious or a little afraid drawing on our own. Working in a group outdoors offers strength in numbers and can bolster your confidence. 

Each week a new sketching location will be posted on the blog and facebook.

This week:

What are we sketching / painting?

An avenue of cherry  blossom in Ryton. Every year a magnificent display of cherry blossom appears. It’s beautiful to look at and wonderful to sketch.
