Course Information

This course will focus on drawing/sketching in situ: responding to the stunning area of coast and hills that surround Ullapool. A series of daily walks will allow you to discover this remote and beautiful area in slow mode. Each day, handmade sketchbooks will be used to gather information and to record a personal response to the environment you find yourself in. Through mark making, drawing and writing, you will develop a direct connection to place. Individual responses will progress and build on what has been learnt before. There will be an emphasis on taking the time to ‘just be’ in the landscape. Slide talks and demonstrations will introduce students to ways of recording, ’seeing’ and experiencing the landscape that may be new to them. Students will develop a wealth of reference material and resource drawings that they can then use to develop works further in the studio or at home. On the final day students will either be based in the studio or walking indendently from the studio, to allow time to consolidate their work made during the previous days outings This course is suitable for beginners and those more experienced, however an ability to walk, unassisted, on sometimes uneven terrain, is the main requirement of the course. We will be going out walking each day, with each walk getting progressively longer, but not necessarily too much harder! You will have to carry all you need for the day in a rucksack, so this is probably one of the most important pieces of equipment along with walking poles/sticks that you will need to bring along. Please contact us if you have any queries regarding agility and fitness. The weather will be unpredictable so please come prepared for all seasons. August can be gloriously warm and sunny, or it can be cold and wet, but either way, we will be out in it! Even if it is sunny, the wind can be cool, so think about chilling off as you sit and draw. It’s always good to have an extra layer to put on/take off. All materials are provided, however students will need to bring along suitable outdoor clothing, a list of required items will be provided on booking.
