17 - 24 April 2022 :: Drawing from the Land ~ an inspirational and dynamic drawing & painting all inclusive vacation based in North Uist, Lewis & Harris.
With guidance from local artist Ellis O’Connor we will be working with a variety of media on paper – including acrylic paints, charcoal, conte, water based inks and chalk pastels – to capture the wild beauty of the Outer Hebrides.
Visiting different locations on the isles of North Uist and Lewis & Harris, we will be working in the studio and outdoors exploring the various ways in which to approach mark making, using mixed mediums to create texture, detail and depth whilst learning many techniques of drawing and painting to capture the spirit of the surrounding environment.
Join us for an inspirational and dynamic week of drawing and painting in an extraordinary setting. Each day will involve going to iconic as well as less well know spots in the Outer Hebrides to work and gather inspiration from the vibrant landscapes, big skies and wild waters. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in creativity and the natural elements in the Scottish islands!
