Join our new Artist-in-Residence, Meg Huby, for an informal day of drawing in the arboretum.
Spend a morning strolling and sketching among the trees, repair to the cafe for a delicious, warming lunch and spend the afternoon adding colour and interest to your drawings in the Visitor Centre.
No formal teaching is involved but encouragement, help and advice will be readily available. The aim is to have a fun day and enjoy the arboretum environment in new ways.
What to bring with you:
A sense of humour!
Anything will do but heavier mixed media paper (220g+) is stronger if you would like to add paint, ink or glue.
Or anything else you fancy drawing with - pens, charcoal, graphite, crayons, sticks.
Plus boots or wellies if it is wet. Generally dress to suit the weather and don’t wear anything that you want to keep clean.
Do bring pens, brushes, inks and watercolours for the afternoon. But please don’t worry if you don’t have any. A small selection of materials will be available to borrow or buy on the day.
Book below. Please inform us of your dietary requirements for catering purposes:
