Event description

Description

Capture in detail the historical architecture, unique heritage features and charming landscape of Edinburgh's city centre with Mark Kirkham, a local artist known as the Edinburgh Sketcher. Explore Edinburgh’s New Town and Portrait Gallery with a sketch book in hand, using ink and watercolour to bring your visit to life. You will take home your favourite drawing in a mount, plus a number of other personal pieces documenting your journey.

With helpful instruction from Mark 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.

After welcome refreshments we will head out to explore Edinburgh's New Town starting with quick simple drawings in black ink and increase to more detailed pieces using watercolour washes as your confidence grows. We will return to The Arienas Collective for a warming mug of soup while we complete our watercolouring, and then we will mount our favourite sketch ready to take home.

Price: £55 per person including all materials and refreshments, and a mounted copy of your favourite sketch.

This experience is also available as a full-day workshop which allows you to develop your sketching skills more fully and to explore a broader range of locations, and create a framed montage as a special memory of your day. And as a private group booking for up to 10 people. Please ask for details.

Please note:

  • This workshop requires a minimum of 4 confirmed places to go ahead.
  • The workshop involves sketching outside around Edinburgh's beautiful New Town and itineries may change according to the weather.
  • The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies before booking.
