Co-ordinator: Margaret Ellis
I was part of a small team in the initial undertaking of gathering information regarding the national u3a High Street Project, completing the task in September 2020. Since then I have attended several workshops (via Zoom) and was inspired by one idea – Urban Sketching.
I am a complete novice at this, with very little ‘drawing’ experience but, as a keen observer of my surroundings I felt that it would be an interesting experience to use the outdoors, our local surroundings and sketch what we see.
The group is based purely in the outdoors, using different locations, a seat of choice and pencils/pens and drawing pads (so involving very little initial cost) but bags of enthusiasm. We meet up, have a quick chat of introduction, then settle down with our pads and sketch what we see before us, taking a break for a warm drink and snack and chat before continuing with our endeavours and ‘seeing how it goes’.
