What to expect

One of the joys of living and working as an artist in Kentmere is walking in the landscape, experiencing the natural world, the weather, textures, sounds and smells of this beautiful lakeland valley. During the weekend we will be outside each day walking (strolling!) to a different part of the valley, taking sketchbooks and other materials with us, noticing the terrain and our response to it. We will experiment with different approaches to recording our individual experience of landscape, exploring markmaking and media to produce expressive and inquisitive drawings. By the end of three days you will have gathered a wealth of material and ideas for working from further, or just as a record of time spent moving through the landscape. 1:1 tuition and group discussions are central to this course which should equip you to approach landscape drawing with renewed freedom and excitement.  Although we will be walking through the landscape each day, we won't be going far as there is plenty to see and draw nearby. I can also vary the routes according to the needs of each group, so please don't be put off by the idea of walking. We will not be hiking up mountains! Do get in touch if you have any concerns about your suitability for the course. Please bring suitable clothing and footwear for being outdoors (we will not to let the weather deter us!) and a rucksack for carrying all your materials and lunch.
