DRAWING & PAINTING WORKSHOPS FOR 2020

OUTDOOR SKETCHING IN AND AROUND EDINBURGH

4th, 11th August

Venue:
Various

For these sketching days out, you can choose between coming either in the morning or the afternoon or if you feel you would like to come for the whole day then of course you can. (This is dependent on whether the public conveniences in each location are open!)

To ensure your safety on these days out, I intend to only take a group of six people so we can maintain social distancing and when it’s necessary for me to approach you to view your work, we can just pop a mask on.

 

For these sketching days it would be ideal if you bring all your own materials.

Grounds of the Dean Gallery
Tuesday 4th August 10 am – 1 pm £36
1.30 – 3.30 pm £24

 

Canalside near Harrison Park
Tuesday 11th August 10 am – 1 pm £36
1.30 – 3.30 pm £24

 

The sun will shine!!

INDOOR/OUTDOOR DRAWING & PAINTING WORKSHOPS IN THE GARDEN ROOM

Wednesdays 5th & 12th August 10 am – 3 pm

Venue:
Craiglockhart, Edinburgh

To ensure your safety in this location please note:
This space is entirely independent, with its own access through a garden gate. It has folding doors which open onto a beautiful and spacious garden to the rear of the property, so it is entirely private……on fair days we will be able to work outside.

The garden room has its own toilet and other hand washing facilities and prior to your arrival all tables will be sanitised.

I intend only to have a group of four for these workshops, again to ensure social distancing and again with these workshops if you bring your own materials.

The Garden Room is located in Craiglockhart, Edinburgh, full details of how to get there on application.

My plan is to set a different theme for each session including of course some “garden views”

The cost per day is £75
