Drawing Outdoors and Online with Pick up a Pencil group

Wednesday 22 April to Friday 22 May

An online and outdoors aimed drawing course to explore and to improve your drawing, to experience and appreciate nature and to be part of a group of like-minded individuals.

The course will be conducted by email and a WhatsApp group. Details of the week’s lesson will be emailed out in advance and there will be a video call at the start of each lesson. Group members will upload their drawings weekly to their appointed WhatsApp group whereupon they will be invited to comment and appreciate one another’s works and where the tutor will also give written feedback on each person’s work.

Members are encouraged to draw outdoors but with a personal choice of locations as they currently have available i.e., garden, allotment, backyard, window box or potted plant

Sheena Vallely trained at Liverpool College of Art and at Camberwell College of Arts, London. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally. She established Pupgroup in 2012 to reject old drawing habits and to encourage new ones.
