What to expect

April is one of the most beautiful times in the Lake District. This will be an opportunity to get outside and to find inspiration in the fells, fields and dry stone walls of the beautiful Kentmere valley. Over the two days you will find ways to communicate your own personal response to the landscape. Whether your focus is the sweeping skies and receding hills, or the more intimate complexity of hedgerow and meadow, you will be challenged to explore a range of media, learning to exploit their characteristics and to find those that suit your practice. Taking inspiration from the great landscape artists of the Lakes, such as Sheila Fell, Winifred Nicholson, Beatrix Potter and JMW Turner, we will find different locations from which to work. 1:1 tuition and group discussions are central to this course which should equip you to approach landscape drawing with renewed freedom and excitement.  Please bring suitable clothing and footwear for being outdoors. We will try not to let the weather deter us. Please let us know if you have limited mobility and we can discuss possibilities with you.
