About this event

A walking and drawing workshop with a difference.

We invite you to this unique event to think about sketching in nature in a different way.

Not as an artistic practise, or even to improve your drawing skills (although there will be plenty of drawing tips) but as a tool to observe and appreciate the natural world.

We are not looking to create future artists, or Instagram-able artworks. We are here to guide you through a confidence-boosting and fun approach to trying your hand at sketching in the outdoors, with a focus on observation and appreciation.

The accuracy of what we draw is secondary to the mental benefits of being outside, the joy in observing nature and the headspace reconnecting with nature can bring.

We would love for you to join us.

Details of the event are as follows:

The class will take place over a 3 hour walk from the Pike Snack Shack on Georges lane, up to Rivington Pike & back down again.

All art materials are provided by the organiser and the class is led by local artist Minty Barlow.

The Walking Art club is the perfect chance to meet new people, try something new & be creative. The class also boosts well-being, through being creative, spending time outdoors, exercising & socialising.

The walk is easy-moderate in parts, with some steep parts, uneven terrain & loose stone underfoot.

All art activities are aimed at beginners, no prior experience is necessary.

Please note, this is not a conventional art class and does not involve traditional landscape painting or drawing.

Participants are responsible for their own health & safety and should wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

The class will go ahead in most weathers and we will ask participants to dress appropriately. In the instance of extreme weather, the class will be rescheduled and the choice of a refund or to transfer the ticket to a new date will be offered.

Materials that are provided include clip boards, art paper, brushes, pencils & ink.
