Wat je gaat doen

We’ll meet in a central location to study and chose a space/buildings to draw. I’ll give a brief description of the building/city history (depending on where we are) before we start to look at the composition of our drawings. I will teach you how to set up a perspective drawing and how to add depth and detail to your drawings.

We’ll work through a series of steps to compose a well made perspective image of our first location. We'll take time to make sure you're happy with the way it works and we'll draw side by side to make sure the pace works for you. In the second half of our session, we'll use a more relaxed technique where your own style will become apparent!

We’ll compare our drawings at the end of the session and hope to have provided you with a few more skills and confidence to keep drawing on your travels!

We’ll be guided by weather and any particular places that you might like to record in your drawings, just let me know: all teaching and conversations are friendly and supportive. Drawing is after all an individual style of capturing something so every session will be unique! All sessions are led by me.

All drawing materials will be provided, along with paper.
Other things to note
Don't worry about having any drawing skills - we'll chat our way through all the drawings and I'll make sure the pace works for you, stopping and demonstrating frequently.

I have been drawing buildings and spaces for over 25 years and teach architecture and design at Edinburgh’s College of Art. Edinburgh is my home city and I regularly coordinate drawing groups in our historic centre - looking at the beautiful interiors and historic built environment.

I love drawing on location and keep a sketchbook with me at all times. I've been drawing for something like 40 years now - always looking around me and seeing new details and opportunities.

I also regularly exhibit and sell works.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will be drawing in and around the Old Town, starting from the Grassmarket, before finishing in the Lawnmarket on the Royal Mile at St Giles' Cathedral (or vice versa). These are some of Edinburgh's oldest spaces and streets and will give us plenty of characterful places to sit and draw. In the winter months or wet weather, we will draw inside, and visit a couple of our city's wonderful interiors.

An enjoyable morning spent with Andy who gently guided me through my first ever drawing lesson in a beautiful location. A real treat. The time flew by and the results of the morning have inspired me continue sketching. I highly recommend this unique experience. Many thanks.

So glad I had the experience of learning to sketch in beautiful Edinburgh. Andy is a great teacher and helped me to understand some good basic sketching techniques. I’m finding myself really looking at buildings and structures with a different perspective. Looking forward to starting a travel sketchbook. Thanks Andy

I took my granddaughter to take part in the sketching session as she has demonstrated an aptitude for drawing and could benefit from this type of exposure. The session was structured and well planned, on a Main Street in the centre of Edinburgh during the Festival! She has definitely benefited from the exposure to a skilled artist used to interacting with different ages and abilities, making the whole experience both interesting and enjoyable, and was totally immersed in the whole experience.

Andy is a welcoming host able to cater to both experienced and emerging artists. He ensured you learned about the city’s history, shared personal antidotes and provided clear instruction in the fundamentals of perspective and city scapes. He provided us with a variety of materials so we did not have to bring along anything. And we left with new found skills and unique memories of Edinburgh. Highly recommend this experience!!!
