It will be on- site in their very own Artist’s Studio.
Their very own Artist being resident Artist Sarah Bell.
The first Workshop of the year is entitled
Sketchbooks and Travel Journals
( Taken from Sarah’s own website ) This is an exciting new workshop which is huge fun. We explore lots of interesting and speedy ways of drawing with dry media, then on day two we begin adding colour with tiny watercolour kits, soluble felt pens and pencils. We also go on a little sketching trip to the beach at Teignmouth: a fantastic seaside location with boats and beach huts galore. If weather is not good we will sketch at a beautiful local Medieval church. Free hard- backed sketchbook included.
