Art Safari Workshops


Sketching birds from life


Sunday 13 and/or Monday 14 September 2020

With Mark Boyd


This exciting two-day workshop will provide plenty of insights into drawing wildlife and wild places, open your eyes to the character of birds, and enthuse your drawings and paintings with the beauty of the natural world.

Mark’s approach is so refreshing – he will help you find lines you never knew existed (and then lose them), he will make you think about colour and markings. Above all he will give you a deeper understanding of birds and of your own approach to drawing and painting wildlife.

Pensthorpe is an award-winning mix of nature trails, beguiling woodland walks, and a showcase for British wildlife and nature conservation.
