Cancellation of the 2020 Summer Sketch Club

In the light of Government guidance concerning the Coronavirus situation, we unfortunately had to cancel the 2020 Summer Sketch Club. If conditions permit later in the year, we will contact those members who signed up for the Sketch Club with a view to organising a day’s sketching.

To give you an idea of how our Sketch Club normally operates…

We organise sketch days outdoors throughout the late spring and summer. Members can join the Sketch Club for an administration fee of only £4 (a variable ‘per outing’ fee is also payable on the day). Members organise their own transport for the sketch days, and all agree that the days present a wonderful opportunity to draw and paint on location in Shropshire in the company of other artists.

The 2020 Programme (CANCELLED):

Wed 22 April Cardingmill Valley – Blue remembered hills
Thurs 14 May Whittington Castle – Arthurian legend, ruins (and swans)
