Jonathan Pomroy: Sketching at the Arboretum

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join Jonathan Pomroy for a day of sketching in the arboretum. The workshop will focus on how to enjoy using a sketchbook. The aim will be to have several pages of sketches in pencil or watercolour or both. Jonathan will demonstrate his sketching techniques at several locations.

We will use the beautiful grounds of Yorkshire Arboretum, especially the lake area, to wander and sketch landscapes, birds, flowers or trees. The day will be very flexible allowing students to draw subjects which inspire them within an area Jonathan can be accessible to all.

He will guide students through the sketching process rather than concentrate on studio painting. He believes sketching can create a special record of time and place and that the process involves really immersing yourself in the natural world. There will be plans for really wet weather alternatives.

A light lunch will be provided.
