Specials

Drawing by Candlelight, FEAST

4th December

Katie Sollohub

This is a celebration of drawing followed by a celebratory feast – eating the still life.
When you arrive at the studio in the early afternoon you will be met by a table prepared for the evening feast and Katie Sollohub to guide you.
The room will be lit by natural light alone, from the large windows overlooking the River Dever. The drawing exercises will start with quick sketches of the ladened table and work towards a bigger piece.
As the light dims towards evening we will stop for tea, and to light the candles. You will continue to draw with only the guttering candles and the glow of the woodburning stove.
To finish the course students and tutor will gather at the table to review the work and feast together

Suitable for all. STUDIO
