Artist Paul Gatenby leads us in an introductory workshop where we will Draw the Landscape of Growing Sudley
Come and join us for some drawing in the beautiful space around Sudley House. Paul will demonstrate drawing and composition which you can then try out in the actual landscape.
You’ll learn about perspective, the ‘rule of thirds’ and mark making.
The workshop is suitable for beginners.
You’ll need a sketchbook, (good quality with a paper weight of 150 gsm), pencils, a sharpener and an eraser. An optional extra is a fold up stool.
A4 clipboards will be provided.
And of course, plenty of sun lotion for the glorious weather!
Paul has taught art since 1991 and has taught in the community, in galleries such as the Tate and for a number of years in Liverpool Community College. (now called City of Liverpool College)
He regularly exhibits art around Merseyside and Edinburgh.
In 2016, along with friend and colleague, Tony (TOC) O’Connell, he founded Liverpool Independent Art School which was housed on Rose Lane until lockdown. They continue to run workshops in painting drawing and printmaking both ‘live’ (within covid guidelines) and online via their Patreon page.
Feel free to contact Paul for any details about the workshop or any other art he and Toc are involved in.
All practitioners are donating their time for free, and funds from this event will be in support of the community crowdfunder to fund renewable technology to make our refurbishment of a derelict building low carbon for a greener future – for more information see www.spacehive.com/growingsudleyeco
