Urban Sketching

Start date: 29th Jun 2022

Time: 10:30 - 16:30

Cost: £40

Day: Wednesday

Duration: 1 weeks

Tutor: Katharine Ruddock

Course code: 22SU037

Bring your lunch.

This day can be stand alone or you can develop your work on a second day which must be purchased separately on the website.

Minimum 2 set locations in the day.

Please join me in Harrogate, for an an opportunity to do some urban sketching with a group of like minded artists, and enjoy the outdoors. We’re so lucky with a wealth of inspiring subject matter. Please bring your own materials, at least a sketchbook, pencil & or pen. If you’re all set up, bring some form of colour, be it portable water colour or coloured pencils for ease, for example. But honestly, just a drawing pen and simple sketchbook can be enough to have a very satisfying day where we study some urban detail, or capture a feeling of classic Harrogate. We’re not short on fabulous architectural subject matter, and all within easy reach. I will pass from student to student throughout the day, giving guidance & encouragement. We’ll move location whilst keeping fairly close together once sketching, so that I can attend to all equally. Do bring lunch, a portable stool or chair is recommended, and feel free to take breaks as you feel inclined. Should we have inclement weather we will take cover somewhere convenient & perhaps work from there if necessary. Meeting point is at the main entrance to Valley Gardens on Valley Drive at 10.20.. I hope to see you there!

Katharine Ruddock

Qualifying with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art, and Post Graduate Diploma from The London College of Furniture, my initial working life involved developing design & business skills at an interiors company in London. Later, self employment had me fulfilling creative briefs in illustration, small business logos, and occasional portrait drawing. Concurrently, commissions for domestic interiors grew, and over 23 years I built a successful interior design & decoration business, based largely in London.
More recently, a long held desire to concentrate on my own creative ideas had me return North, progressing my art and sculpture activities. Currently represented at a small gallery in the North East, fulfilling private commissions, and thrilled to be building this new chapter.
It’s exciting being part of Rossett Adult Learning - a really happy piece of life’s creative jigsaw - a lovely opportunity to share in artistic enthusiasm, and such a pleasure… meeting my students!
