Beginners Welcome!
Drawing and painting on location can provide so much more inspiration than at home or in the studio, and it’s even better in a group!

Come along to our fun and sociable Art on Location events and enjoy drawing or painting iconic and hidden locations around Manchester under the guidance of our experienced and enthusiastic tutors.

Each session we visit a different location and draw, paint and admire all that Manchester has to offer!  Sometimes we will be in museums and galleries where talks focusing on the venue or artwork will be included.

Art on Location is perfect for complete beginners who want to try out their drawing skills under the guidance of a knowledgeable tutor but are also suitable for those with more experience who wish to develop their artistic skills further or just enjoy some weekly inspiration with a fun and friendly group.
