Be inspired by Betjeman! Enjoy a 3 hour drawing workshop, led by professional artist and tutor Vicky Vergou. Aimed at adults who like sketching and drawing, the session’s theme will be Betjeman’s poem, ‘On Leaving Wantage 1972’. Wear suitable footwear and wrap up warm – weather permitting, the morning will start with a brisk 3 minute walk from the museum to Letcombe Brook to do some quick sketches of the scenes the poet describes. Back in the museum’s Barn Gallery, Vicky will demonstrate how you can incorporate colour into your sketches and encourage you to create your own drawings in a variety of styles, experimenting with different media.
Please bring your own sketch-book or paper and materials you would like to use e.g. pencils, charcoal, dry pastels, crayons, inks plus a water container and small brushes. You can also bring watercolours (please note: acrylic and oils cannot be used in the museum galleries).
