Summer Sketch Club 2021

We are pleased to have now published our planned Summer 2021 Sketch Club Programme (see below), but we will of course keep everything under review. We plan fewer dates than usual this year, but we are already enjoying being able to sketch outside together again. Below is a glimpse of our first 2021 day out, to Carding Mill Valley.

We have waived the Sketch Club joining fee for 2021, but please see the full programme for details of any ‘location fee’ payable on the day. You will be sent the full Programme details once you have joined the Sketch Club mailing list; please see your April or July Focal Points Newsletters for how to join.

The 2021 Programme:

Wed 9 June Cardingmill Valley – Blue remembered hills
Wed 14 July Whittington Castle – Arthurian legend, ruins (and swans)
Thurs 12 August Stiperstones, the Bog – Heather, hills, views and industrial ruins
Thurs 9th September Wentnor – Quaint village with stunning landscape

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.

Full details of all venues are sent to you once you have applied (in the Spring of each year) and paid to join the year’s programme. All members are welcome!
