Sketching the West End - 26th August 2016
Fri 26 August 2016, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
This August draw your way through Edinburgh’s West End.
Capture in detail the historical architecture, unique heritage features and charming landscape of one of the capital’s best kept secrets. Explore Edinburgh’s West End with a sketch book in hand, using ink and watercolour to bring your visit to life.
With helpful instruction from Mark Kirkham, an iconic local artist known as the Edinburgh Sketcher, you will quickly pick up sketching skills while increasing confidence in your own artistic ability as you wynd through cobbled streets, Georgian crescents and stylish shop fronts.
You’ll start your sketching adventure on the steps of Stafford Street Dental Care, 24 Stafford Street. Stafford Street is home to many of Edinburgh’s most unique and enticing shops. Come early for a wee wander!
Once you’ve filled your pages with beautiful West End images, we’ll end our tour at Strumpets on William Street where you’ll add watercolour to your sketches. Strumpets homemade cakes are a popular indulgence in the West End!
All abilities welcome and encouraged!
