Event Description

Quentin Blake Style Workshop

Sunday 2nd February  | 9.45am – 1.15pm

Join us for a fabulous morning and learn to draw your own Quentin Blake style pen and watercolour illustrations of your friends, family and pets!  Your talented tutor and artist, Sarah Watson will teach you her secret methods to getting your drawing hand working just like Quentin’s to capture the immediate likeness and character of your subject in just a few quick strokes. You will then learn the art of watercolour wash, working in and outside of the line to capture the liveliness of the figure or face. Expect a lot of fun and laughs!

All materials, tools and refreshments are included in the workshop price. You will need to bring 8 to 10 subjects to draw from photos, friends, family and pets, some full body images as well as just the head and shoulders.

About Sarah Watson BA (Hons)

Sarah Watson graduated from De Montfort University in 1994 with a First Class Degree in Combined Arts & Humanities, studying Fine Art, History of Art and Media Studies. She continued to paint large scale commissioned abstract paintings and portraits, during a 15 year career in the music industry. In 2009 she returned to her Rutland and Lincolnshire roots to concentrate on her painting which focuses mostly on semi-abstract landscapes in pastels, oils and acrylics, drawing inspiration from the glorious countryside around her. A more commercial leg to her artistic portfolio is Wonky Dogs, her ‘expressive animal portraits for the stylish animal lover.’ Sarah has exhibited her work widely, with solo shows in the Lake District and at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham in 2015.

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.
