More Information:

Not just painting and trying to capture and sketch different locations around the Musicbox; we will look at various materials, tools, carrying bags and other equipment recommended for plein air.

We’ll discuss painting with watercolour, acrylics and even oils. Want to join a group that likes to plein air? Want to try some of the competitions in the summer? We have all the info to go with that.

Always wanted to try an urban scene – we’ll spend time capturing the scenes around Ambleside – people, places, wildlife and more. Its up to you and what you want to explore.

There will be demos, writeups to take away and your own memories and explorations on paper or canvas or board.

The Musicbox makes a great indoor venue if it rains and we have access to the kitchen and washroom facilities which is always practical on a full day of creative activity! All it takes to start is a sketch pad, pencil, eraser and maybe a couple of paints. Don’t forget the hat, sunscreen, bugspray and comfortable clothing.
