WOULD-BE artists will be shown how to become quick on the draw in Cliffe Castle Park and Museum.
Urban sketcher Louise Garrett is returning to the Keighley visitor attraction to lead monthly Sketching What We See sessions.
Workshops organised last year by Cliffe Castle Support Group proved hugely successful Louise took participants out and about in the park.
A spokesman said: “If anyone missed out first time round, now is another chance to try ‘drawing in the moment’ on location, using a range of drawing and painting materials.
“With the sketch books and media provided and professional tuition from practicing urban sketcher Louise Garrett, there’ll be no limit to your potential, even if you’re a complete beginner.
“Be amazed at what can emerge from your hand in just four hours of expertly-run workshop, and there’s plenty to catch your eye in and around the park and museum.
“Everyone takes home a unique and personal record of a rewarding day and, if they want, can try another session with a different theme. You may well find yourself truly hooked by the end and it won’t seem like learning – it’s too enjoyable for that!”
The workshops will all run on Fridays. They are on the themes of Collecting Treasures (March 27), Slow Hunting and Gathering (April 24), Now Spring Has Clad the Grove in Green (May 15), Tree Bathing for Sketchers with No Nudity Involved (June 19), and Grotesques and Gothic Skylines (July 17).
Each session cost £15 with drawing and painting materials provided, and a sketchbook to use and keep.
Pre-booking and payment in advance is essential, and the fee is non-returnable. Booking can be for an individual course, all five or any combination of sessions. Call 01274 437939 to book.
Organisers say the sessions are aimed at adults who are keen to learn how to draw ‘in the moment’ and ‘on location.
The spokesman added: “You will build your confidence in sketching what catches your eye, jogs a memory, or excites your imagination.
“We will be trying out different media, will use portable colour, and will cover a variety of places in the fascinating museum and park to create a completely unique and personal record.”
Indoor arrangements will be made for inclement weather.
