We have introduced a range of safety measures to keep everyone as safe and comfortable as possible. We ask you to please respect social distancing guidelines, your tutor will be keeping their distance too.

Participant numbers are limited to 6 per course, this will allow everyone to feel comfortable keeping a safe distance working outdoors.

Each participant will need to bring their own materials, and will only handle their own work and tools throughout the course.



Drawing what you see in nature is the perfect tool to achieve calm and contentment with the world. Relax into creativity in sketching in the park, led by professional artist Sarah-Jane Richards.

Participants will explore how sketching, drawing and mark making from observation whilst walking in the beautiful leafy grounds of Calderstones Park offers a soothing and stress-reducing experience. Suitable for all levels and abilities.
