Sunday 21st November | Sketch Walk | 12pm – 2pm

.Join Scott ’The Sketching Postman’ for a walk around Waterfoot and Newchurch, pausing occasionally to sketch our surroundings.  This is an informal, social gathering so there’s no need to book and the event is free to attend.  Seasoned urban sketchers and newbies welcome.  Please bring your own sketchbook and pen/pencil. 

Please note, the Sketch Walk is an informal group rather than tuition session, however tips & advice can be offered to any that want it!  Scott will share tips on capturing the wide angle, convex perspective that can be seen in many Sketching Postman paintings. 
* Event will go ahead with a little bit of rain, please come ready for all weathers and a walk!  However if heavy rain is forecast, sketch group will still take place in The Boo.
