Hazlehurst’s July Urban Sketching meetup

Hazlehurst Urban Sketching Group

Exciting news from Hazlehurst Studios as we gear up for our next urban sketching meetup of 2024. Join us for a creative journey led by Allison John, our resident artist and urban sketching enthusiast. Even though we’re still a fresh group, the atmosphere is relaxed, and artistic adventures await! 🎨✨

Hazlehurst Studios, we’re a not-for-profit art studios based in Runcorn, Cheshire, passionate about fostering a vibrant local creative community.

What is Urban Sketching? Urban Sketchers is a global artistic community that specializes in sketching on location within the cities, towns, and villages they call home or explore while traveling. This creative movement originated on Flickr in 2007, thanks to the efforts of journalist Gabriel Campanario.

It’s a fantastic day out, spent with kindred spirits, sketching the beauty of your local surroundings. This is an excellent opportunity, especially if you’re a bit apprehensive about sketching in public on your own. Plus, you’ll have the chance to connect with fellow locals who share your passion for sketching.

What Should You Bring? Make sure to dress appropriately for the ever-changing British weather! Bring your preferred sketching materials and a sensible lightweight foldable chair. you can also bring along your lunch or visit the local food shops when we stop for lunch.

Location: TBD
