Sketching workshops


Learn speed sketching skills in beautiful surroundings on one of my walking tours

No prior knowledge is needed for my relaxed and friendly introduction workshops. I have recently added two more advanced sessions for people who want to come back and concentrate on a particular area.

I provide all the materials for you to draw a number of sketches out on location, although if weather is particularly bad we can bring the New Town indoors with photographs.

You will leave with a unique piece of art you created yourself as well as a increased confidence in your ability to capture the world around you in pen and watercolour.


People and Crowds with Arienas Collective

Multiple dates, see below for details

£65 per adult which includes all materials required, and refreshments.

In this 3.5 hour workshop we will capture both crowds on the streets of Edinburgh, and also close up figure sketches from within the Scottish Portrait Gallery.

Places are limited to eight or under on this more advanced sketching workshop in order to provide more one-to-one tuition. The price includes all materials, plus a hot drink served with cake or biscuits. You will also take home all the sketches you complete. Click on the date below to book.
