Landscape Drawing for Teens

A two day course for teens with bruce bamber

25 and 26 August 2020 , 10am to 12 noon each day.  £30 for the two day course.
This workshop is for teenagers.

This is an opportunity to try out a variety of drawing media to explore some of the techniques and possibilities of drawing landscapes. 

The sessions will be outside (unless it’s raining) so clothing needs to be warm and not smart! 

The meeting point for the first session will be at City Arts Newbury (10 Hampton Road) and we’ll walk a short distance to our drawing spot.

On the second day, we’ll meet directly on the day’s location – to be confirmed on day one.
