Draw in the Quarry

20 July 2018

A full day art workshop event, with a morning outdoor sketch expedition leading to a final production of a mounted piece of art.

About the course

A full day workshop event, starting with outdoor sketching of subjects around the Quarry (some parts maybe out of bounds), a short explanation from the artist before you head out to settle down to sketch one or more scenes/places/items/ in the sketch books (to be provided).

Returning to base for lunch (included), then you will choose one of the sketches to work up into a full size line and wash painting. A quick demo and full explanation of John’s techniques and methods will be given to guide you.

John will offer advice and help as needed throughout the session and the aim will be to each have a finished painting ready to mount.

About the tutor

John Harrison is a trained graphic designer with a strong illustrative background, and has been running successful demonstrations and /or workshops with art clubs or societies for the last 4 years. His quick, loose style is perfect for on the spot sketching, then working up into a finished painting. John is an active member of the Urban Sketchers movement, and is very comfortable dealing with people of all abilities.
