WWT’s founder Sir Peter Scott enjoyed capturing the beauty of wildfowl and wetland landscapes through sketching and painting. Today, many artists and photographers are inspired by the result of his vision of a thriving urban wildlife habitat here at WWT London Wetland Centre.
Come along to our workshop and learn some basic sketching techniques – all materials will be provided.
Artist Judith Gordon will begin the day with an introduction to drawing materials and basic techniques. She’ll provide wildfowl and landscape photographs taken at London Wetland Centre for sketching, enabling you to focus on details such as birds’ eyes, bills and plumage. You’ll also be able to try sketching backgrounds: water, sky and foliage. As you sketch Judith will provide support and answer questions.
During a one hour break you’ll be able to purchase lunch in the Water’s Edge Cafe but also take the opportunity to explore the World Wetlands area of the Centre to see some of the birds you have been sketching.
In the afternoon you’ll be able to choose a new subject to sketch, or perhaps bringing wildfowl and a background together into one piece. Towards the end of the day, you will be able to share your work and discuss what you’ve learned.
Suitable for adults aged 16 and over. £40pp, includes all materials. Price does not include admission to the Centre. Booking essential: please call 020 8409 4400.
