Wednesday Urban Sketching

Wednesdays 10am - 12pm

  • 10 British pounds
  • Scarborough - NYAS Shop, Saint Nicholas Cliff

For this class we will meet at the North Yorks Art School shop on St. Nicholas Cliff, next to the Grand Hotel, then spend the morning exploring the sights of Scarborough and learn to look at things. Buildings, flowers, people. Our goal as artists is to be aware of the world around us more acutely. To pull it apart. To analyse how it hangs together. The rhythm of life. Its shape, colour, texture, tone. Then there's your application. The way you make marks is a world in itself and being in a group means you're likely to pick up tips and techniques that will help your drawings and paintings develop over time. Tuition and feedback is on offer from NYAS tutor and coach Darja Savonina. It's perhaps some sort of paradox that all this tuning in coincides with a kind of dropping out. Intense focus helps you forget the world of worry. Your concentration on the task at hand does strange things with time. It flies and yet you feel elated and a good sort of tired when done. It's a sort of work out for the brain that connects you with your surroundings in ways you're not used to. Wednesdays 10am - 12pm with Darja Savonina This class will start from: North Yorks Art School Shop 33 St. Nicholas Cliff Scarborough YO11 2BP Basic drawing materials will be provided for this workshop but please feel free to bring along your own drawing pad, pens, pencils paint etc. Refreshments will be available from the NYAS Shop.
