Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS:   No entry requirements but students need to be able to walk on mildly rugged terrain such as the moderate hills and paths within Edinburgh City limits. Itinerary will be sent to enrolled students prior to course start date. OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO COURSE: A chance to sketch outdoors in companionable quiet with as much or as little tutor input as desired, a loose course structure devised to gently stretch your abilities with a suggested (but ultimately optional) focus, technique and/ or medium each week, the opportunity to get peer and tutor feedback (again, if desired) or to just enjoy yourself. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT:  See above. A loose structure with suggested foci and media but lots of choice and flexibility to reflect varied student needs and interests. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN:  Students will be provided with support to develop their own style, through guidance on techniques and feedback from the tutor. RESOURCES / ADDITIONAL COSTS REQUIRED BY STUDENTS:   Art students need to provide- a decent quality sketchpad, A3 size, with a minimum paper weight of 90 mcg; sketching pencils of preferred density (2B minimum suggested); bottle of water for wet media; optional watercolours/ watercolour pencils/ oil bar/ dry pastels/ charcoal/ sketching pens/ acrylic paints/ brushes; a sun hat and sun cream or waterproof jacket depending on the forecast comfortable and practical footwear; water bottle; hand sanitiser; a folding camping stool or small cushion for sitting on; snack (optional). HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES:  See above for sun hat, sun cream, hand sanitiser, kitchen or toilet roll for tidying up wet materials and spillages. Please sharpen pencils in advance or use pencil sharpeners rather than Stanley knives or other blades to lessen the likelihood of needing the First Aid box! WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN BAD WEATHER:  Course will go ahead under a shelter.
