Urban Sketching News


Our last session was really enjoyable in spite of the cold weather. After an hour of drawing around St.Wilfred's Church, Standish, the group thawed out their fingers and toes in Cross Street Arts. Following a welcome cuppa we toured the fascinating warren of artists' studios in the building. Inspirational!

We're staying local in March, close to cafes. Perhaps spread our wings once April arrives. Some members have expressed a wish to visit Port Sunlight, hopefully we can arrange this soon.

Wednesday 11th March. Meet !0.00am outside Mesnes Park Pavilion café, Wigan.
Good views of buildings such as Pagefield Mill. Once the leaves on the trees come out we won't be able to see it.

Wednesday 25th March. Meet 10.00am in the area of the Fork and Brush Arts café at the Old Courts, Crawford Street, Wigan.
New cafe recently opened....always good to show support for local independent businesses! Lots to draw around the Old Courts and Wigan Parish Church. Even though we've spent time in this area in the past there's always a different view to find.
