A Call Out to all Budding Artists – Spaces Still Available on Sculthorpe Moors Trees & Charcoal Workshop

Trees & Charcoal Workshop with Bob Larking on 25 & 26 June

Bob Larking MA invites you to join him for two days of “Field working” with sketchbooks and charcoal, to record trees, water, landscape and the timeless tranquillity of Sculthorpe Moor.  Bob, who is an experienced art tutor, has previously spent time out on the reserve making location charcoal drawings in order to record the changing seasons.  This work has culminated in two exhibitions held during the autumn of 2013 at Sculthorpe Moor and the John Lewis store in Norwich.

Working closely with the group, Bob will introduce participants on the course a range of subjects and challenges which should offer a wealth of creative opportunities.  This is a workshop for adults of all abilities with friendly tuition and a supportive atmosphere.

What should you bring for art materials? A good quality hard-backed sketchbook, charcoal pencils, a putty rubber, masking tape and scrap paper

What extras should you bring? A portable seat if required, suitable clothing for the weather, stout outdoor waterproof footwear, a hat, packed lunch and water bottle, wipes and rubbish bag, and a portable easel or drawing board if required.

The course runs on both Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June and you can attend one or both of the courses (from 10am – 4pm).  

COST:  Day Course – £40.00, Two Day Course – £75.00    (The cost includes tuition, refreshments, parking and the studio base)
