Spend a relaxing afternoon drawing in the lovely surroundings of Weston Park with artist Faunagraphic. Come rain or shine, take a closer look at the flowers, wildlife and historic monuments around you. If it is raining, take shelter in our basecamp in the Bandstand.
Faunagraphic will be on hand with ideas to get you started and artistic support for those who want it. She is an artist and graphic designer, specialising in spray painting and murals with a passion for graffiti. From drawings in sketchbooks to massive murals, her work is often inspired by nature and the environment.
Drop in whenever and stay for as long as you like. Whether you are a fully fledged sketcher, or haven’t drawn since you were 10 – this session is suitable for all ages and all abilities. All materials are provided, but feel free to bring along your own sketchbook/ iPad etc.
If you are looking for more inspiration, pop in to the Recording Britain exhibition at the Millennium Gallery to see sketches of the great outdoors.
This event is part of Drawing the Summer, a programme of exhibitions, events, and have-a-go activities to get Sheffield sketching morning, noon and night. From careful botanical drawings to super speedy charcoal sketches, awaken your inner artist and polish up your creative skills. Take a fresh look at the things around you and capture the moment or let your imagination roam.
