10am Meet and Greet.
We will give out materials and paper and give a short talk about what we will be doing during the day. All our guided sketching walk days are different and we take advantage of weather conditions and light etc but we follow a general schedule as follows. All timings are approximate apart from start time
10.15 We will take a short walk to the first stopping place and set up for some intro sketching. We will show you quick and easy exercises to loosen up and start making sense of the view and how to record it in a loose and simple way.
11.30 We will walk a little further and set up at a second location and do some more sketching using what we've learned so far and adding more exercises in mark making and composition.
12.30 - 1pm. Lunch
1pm On to the last location where we will taken what we have learned during the morning and use those skills and techniques to create sketches of the location in a more confident and personal way.
3pm We will return to our start point and look at what we have achieved and how to take that forward for future sketching. You will keep all the drawings you have made of course.
