Discover your creative side with two days of arts and crafts activities at Loch of Strathbeg!
All weekend we'll be hosting an exhibition of wildlife by local artists, including Karen Hartnell (www.karen-hartnell.co.uk) who is known for her work drawing and painting White-tailed Eagles and local artist Kath Hamper. We've also got artist Elinor Grieve (www.artbyelinor.com) in residence over the weekend, painting and sketching on the reserve and available to answer your questions about drawing and painting wildlife.
SUNDAY- Ever wanted to draw wildlife but not sure where to start? Maybe you’re already creating but would like some advice and the chance to work alongside other artists? We’re holding a wildlife sketching workshop from 11am-3pm. In the morning we'll explore the reserve collecting and sketching natural materials. After a short break for refreshments we'll either continue drawing and painting natural materials indoors, or stay outdoors sketching the wildlife and the stunning landscape of Loch of Strathbeg. We will provide basic materials but please bring along your own paints/pencils etc as well. The workshop is suitable for beginners and improving artists. Suggested donation £10 per person.
If you are an experienced and/or professional artist and would like to exhibit your work or help us give advice to our visitors then please get in touch.
