In this workshop, you will be guided on a drawing tour of Scarborough South Bay, led by Savannah Storm (illustrator & drawing enthusiast). We will be sketching from life, recording the things we see around us into our sketchbooks. Urban sketching is great for boosting your observation skills and mindfulness, as well as being a thoroughly enjoyable and low-fuss way to try a new creative activity.
What is a Sketch Walk?
Sketching whilst outside on a walk or at a location is all about observing and capturing the place around you. It often takes the form of drawing in a sketchbook, recording things you see straight from life onto paper. Urban sketching is great for boosting your observation skills and mindfulness, as well as being a thoroughly enjoyable and low-fuss way to try a new creative activity.
Where will it be & what will we do?
Starting in the gardens at Woodend, you will make your own sketchbooks, and do some warm-up drawing exercises. The sketch walk will then go down to Scarborough South Bay area. This area has many interesting things to draw, such as beautiful historic buildings and structures, natural spaces with trees and plants, and wildlife such as sea birds.
The route and venue will be step free, and their will benches where you can sit and draw.
