Sketching Outdoors - Summer 2017

Village centre, Frejus Village centre, Frejus

Only 1 place remaining.

A great pastime for the summer months and a very personal way of recording your memories.

This short course is aimed at anyone wanting to meet and sketch outdoors.

Whether you want to practice, learn drawing from life, improve your skills or gain confidence, I hope this course will have something for you.


Most of our time will be spent sketching in Monflanquin.

Tea and coffee will be available at the gallery, but if you prefer fruit/herbal teas etc, please bring whatever you prefer.

The main language will be English, but if you can forgive my French, I would welcome any French speakers.

Dates & Venue

The course will run for 4 weeks on a Monday afternoon from 12:30 to 16:30.

The course will start on Monday 05/6/2017 and finish on Monday 26/06/17.

We will meet at Gallery JS for a short discussion before heading off outdoors. In the event of very bad weather, we can use the gallery as a workshop as the gallery will be closed to the general public when the course is running. Tea and coffee will be provided, but if you prefer fruit/herbal teas etc, please bring whatever you prefer.


The great thing about sketching is the equipment can be as simple as you like.

I would suggest a good quality watercolour book of thicker paper (often sold in France as ‘Carnet de Voyages’).

Pencils, fineliners, ink pens and a small selection of watercolours can be useful depending on what you prefer.

A portable seat or cushion can also be useful.

Course cost

The cost of the four week course will be 40€ per person, payable in advance. Numbers will be limited to a maximum of 10 people.

Places will be allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis. To reserve your place, please either use the form below or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
