Drawing at Dusk | Thu 27 Apr | 7.15-8.45pm | £35 | 16+ yrs | Guest Artist Jess Emsley | The Helm, Serpentine Woods & Studio 3

Join us for a mindful, slow-paced, outdoor drawing workshop as the daylight fades. Drawing at Dusk will focus on deliberately tuning into dusk as a particular time of the day, and how it affects the appearance and feel of a familiar place, such as the lighting, sounds, shapes and atmosphere.

Participants will start with some warm-up activities where they try out several short drawing techniques and exercises, followed by an extended period of drawing as the light noticeably fades.

If you would like to book as a family or group of friends, please contact Learning and Engagement Manager claire.williams@breweryarts.co.uk for further information.

What do I need to bring with me?

The ground in wooded areas will be uneven underfoot, so please wear appropriate shoes and clothing for walking in all weather. Participants may wish to bring a head torch, a camera, and spectacles if required.

Are there any additional costs?

All materials are provided but participants may wish to bring their own equipment.
