Travel sketching adventure holiday

06/06/2019 @ 16:00:09/06/2019 @ 10:00

This 3-night sketchbook adventure will take you through the essentials of travel sketching whilst having a lot of fun! We’ll be sketching the scenery in and around the historic hill-top village of Quarante as well as the Canal du Midi.

Why is this a travel sketching adventure? Because we’ll be taking the bus so you won’t even need a car!  This will be great fun and sketching on-the-go, making memories and capturing the essence of those moments in your sketchbook.

We’ll focus on observing shapes, page planning and working fast and loose with watercolour, how to sketch people and architecture, perspective, flowers and nature.

Our sketching itinerary starts the evening of 6 June. For the next 2 days we will start sketching in the morning and after lunch you then have the rest of the day to explore the area on your own, do some more sketching or relax by the private pool.

Whether you are already sketching or an absolute beginner, Annette will guide you step-by-step. You’ll produce your first sketch within an hour and will complete your stay with some fabulous memories in your sketchbook!

Materials: We will be using the Starter sketch kit (items will be available for you to use on loan or to purchase if you do not have your own). You will need your own A5 spiral-bound sketchbook (min 110gsm) which can be purchased on arrival.
