Drawing the Shropshire Landscape
1 PLACE REMAINING

Using the beautiful Shropshire landscape and natural grasses as inspiration, learn how to create a simple drawing using two colours of ink.

Build a picture of the landscape by creating a series of interesting marks using a selection of tools that are both manmade and from nature. Consideration will be given to a simple composition in thumb nail sketches which will then be scaled up to A4. Different types of paper will be used to give varying textures including lining paper, tracing and tissue papers.

At the end of the day students will leave with several finished pieces, two of which will be mounted. 

Tutor will provide all materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your fee.

Some images of the landscape will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own pictures to work from.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A picnic lunch will be provided.
