Description

Want to try drawing local landmarks from life? Join designer, illustrator and urban sketcher Joe Bean on a mini sketchwalk, suitable for beginners. Starting at Headingley Stadium and finishing at Coffee on the Crescent, we will sketch the Stadium, the Bear Pit on Cardigan Road, and the landmarks at Hyde Park Corner.

You will need to bring your own sketchbook and pencil/s - they don't need to be anything fancy, just something you can draw with. Don't worry if you 'can't draw' - it's all about having fun.

The walk will end with a visit to Joe Bean's new exhibition Destruction to Construction at Coffee on the Crescent, where you will also be able to purchase refreshments (optional).

Meet at 2:40pm to start at 2:45pm at the iron gates outside Headingley Stadium on the Kirkstall Lane side, Headingley.

Destruction to Construction is an exhibition of sketches of the recent Headingley Stadium redevelopment, all drawn on location by Joe Bean. The historic stadium has evolved many times sice its establishement in 1890. The internationally renowned sporting landmark hosts both cricket and rugby matches and has recently undergone yet another radical transformation. Joe has captured the changes over an 18 month period in 2017-18 with a series of ink and watercolour sketches. All were drawn from life whilst on site.

Created for this exhibition, all prints are for sale - ask at Coffee on the Crescent for details.
