The Canal du Midi is a UNESCO heritage site which runs right through the heart of Languedoc and the wine-growing area of the Minervois – there are some idyllic and fascinating spaces where you can unwind and watch the barges slowly passing by and sketch in the shade of the trees.

These relaxed half-day workshops take place in 5 lesser known locations right alongside the Canal. Each workshop starts at 09.30 giving us a chance to work on our drawings in the cooler part of the day.  You will not need previous art experience to enjoy this event – just an interest in travel sketching with watercolour and learning more about the area!

Step-by-step you will work through drawing what you see, and there will be plenty of guidance on mixing colours and adding washes of watercolour to bring your sketch to life.  Each workshop is designed for a small friendly group and packed with arty tips and tricks such as painting reflections, drawing people and how to plan your sketchbook pages.
