Do you like to sketch the landscape and would like to go with like minded company?
Starting in the Autumn of 2014 I will be arranging bi-monthly art walks, focused on building sketchbooks to inspire and research for future artworks or other creative ventures. These short artwalks will be led by me with self directed sketching in the company of like minded people who enjoy getting outside and want to build nature and landscape into their work. By sketching in company you will experience the benefit of developing your own practice and ideas, and also see and benefit from seeing other people's experiences.
Similar in concept to regular life drawing classes these one and half hour outings are designed to go to different local landscapes in the North Essex/Suffolk borders to sketch, experience and see; capturing moments of time and Season. At the end of each session we will quickly share our work and have a quick discussion about what has inspired us.
I am wondering what days of the week to have these and I have set up a quick poll which you can see here: http://www.heatherrachel.co.uk/blog/2014/8/bi-monthly-artwalks--sketch-the-stour-valley-and-beyond. Results are anonymous. At the moment they are scheduled for Monday mornings but this can change and I could do two different days a month. Let me know what you think!
The cost per art walk is £6 and needs to be booked in advance, so I know the number of people coming and to keep the group size manageable. Numbers are limited to 8 people per session. See the dates through to Christmas here
We will go out in all weathers and across the Winter so please dress accordingly! As it gets colder our stops will be shorter so as to keep moving and keep warm. If it is really 'chucking it' down then we won't go! For most places we will go there will access to a pub or a tea room nearby.
