The River Deben Estuary is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. From busy waterfront scenes and small fishing villages to quiet marshes and saltings full of wading birds, there is plenty of sketching material to enjoy on our tidal river.
The Art Safari studio is on the Woodbridge waterfront so we don’t have to go far from the studio to enjoy all the colours, tides and moods that the river has to offer. The iconic Tide Mill is also a few steps away and the mysterious Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo is just across the river.
The focus of this course will be on observational sketching rather than finished paintings, using drawing media, watercolours or whatever lightweight materials you prefer to use. It is suitable for those who wish to develop their skills with new subjects and techniques as well as for those who lack confidence in sketching on location and need some encouragement!
In the evenings there’s the option to gather in a local restaurant or pub for a convivial Art Safari evening (dinner not included).
Up to 16 participants, depending on current government guidelines on social distancing.
£285 including VAT, with lunch and refreshments
