Colder weather takes us indoors starting with cafe sketching in November, to be followed by sheltered locations through the winter. Come along for free trial session before deciding to take out a membership subscription. Contact details below.
Annual programme: This group is for anyone who enjoys urban sketching, or who would like to gain more experience, with the support of others - beginners and experienced welcome. We aim to encourage beginners and returners who might otherwise find the prospect of sketching in public daunting. The sketching-on-location sessions are relaxed and open, giving participants space and time to pursue their own interests. We meet monthly, usually on the fourth Saturday morning through the spring and summer into autumn sketching on location in the centre of Shrewsbury. In addition midweek evening sketching is offered through summer. Shrewsbury provides a delightful range of urban subjects, including buildings, street scenes, parkland, the river and wildlife. If the weather is inclement, we retreat to sheltered locations.
In winter months we find sheltered locations. Also we offer the facility through our website to share online sketching projects undertaken individually at home.
The group is open to suggestions for locations and dates. And if there was sufficient interest, we could try to arrange a workshop for newcomers or returners wishing to gain more confidence to go out sketching.
