Art On The Boat, Richmond

Enjoy art on a delightful boat with indoor and outdoor tables and chairs, (coffee and snacks available) on a Thursday morning. 

It is located in Richmond upon Thames 100m upstream of Richmond Bridge, before the landing stage. It is 5 mins walk from both Richmond mainline and tube station.

As the weather is unsettled this week, we can be outside sketching if fine, or indoors if rainy - there is good natural light inside the boat.

I will be teaching a class on how to make Artists Trading Cards (ATCs) which are fun to make, keep or swap. 

£7.50 payable on the day plus a one off £1 charge to join the visitor centre.

All materials provided but if you have favourite materials bring them along. Suitable for beginners or experienced artists.

    Hi Julia
    Is there any one-day outdoor drawing/ water colour/ painting tour or scape coming soon? Do know any group who does? Is lovely weather would be nice to spend time in countryside with creative people.
    Thank you.

    Great to see everyone today. The artists' trading cards are a great idea and I intend to keep making and swapping them.

    Hope to see you all at another event soon.

    Hi Lily - I do all sorts of art. I am teaching a workshop regularly on Mondays at Petersham Nurseries -art diaries - where you learn many different techniques. Must dash now but will post details later! Sorry not to see you today but hope to meet up soon.

    No it is moored - does not travel - there are also lovely decks around it with tables and chairs - so you can sketch view in any direction. It would be lovely to be outside and to do that - fingers crossed for good weather - otherwise we can be inside. There are two big skylights to the interior, so we would still have natural light to work!
