2 July – 16 July (3 weeks, £54) In this new course we’ll be leaving the building to explore Blackheath itself. We will be taking our pens and pencils to the streets and heath, finding wonderful spots to draw and sketch as a group. We’ll try different mediums suitable for portable drawings and use different techniques to introduce you to sketching in the urban environment. It’s a wonderful way to explore our village and to observe and capture Blackheath life and to build you confidence to draw in public! We’ll discuss how to take your work back in the studio to create wonderful Blackheath illustrations. This course takes place outside – weather permitting. Please dress for the Blackheath climate, wear comfy shoes for walking and standing and be ready for an adventure! Come prepared with a sketchbook of your choice.
