Charcoal and sketch paper are included. Please bring your own paints and watercolour paper, board or canvas or any other materials you will require. The cafe will be open for lunch and snacks.
Spend the days drawing and sketching in the serene grounds and studio of Shankill Castle with Phoebe Cope. Increase your confidence, practice your technique, observation skills and perspective by challenging yourself and continually drawing and honing your practice. Phoebe will guide you around the grounds, studio and interior of Shankill to focus your attention on different details in landscapes, still life, figurative, architectural and interior drawings.
Whether you choose to specialise in Drawing or Painting you will be supported in your chosen field and should reach goal of at least one finished piece of work at the end of each day. You will learn to use perspective and learn how to depict the anatomy of movement in animals and people. We will be roaming the farm, gardens and interior of Shankill Castle to get ideas and inspiration.
