Drawing Sessions at Lightwood House

Drawing Sessions

For those artists amongst us who enjoy drawing the human figure we are starting the Drawing Sessions again at Lightwoods House in Bearwood on the 2nd of March.

Drawing Sessions

It is £10 a session and these are drop in sessions so there’s no joining fee or minimum sessions booked in advance.

Find the venue here:

All are welcome – just bring your art supplies. Not sure what to bring?

Start with a pencil, rubber and a sketchbook and work your way up to whatever direction you want to go in.

We look forward to seeing you there!

If you managed to make ArtsMile 2019 then it was good to see you and we hope you enjoyed the event.

It was our busiest ever and with even more going on and I’m sure next year will be even busier and more ambitious.

We are proud of what we achieved together and are happy to see so many people having fun on the day and enjoying themselves.

Here are a few highlights of the day:

PLAY football, tug of war, obstacle course, tai chi, led bike rides, children’s exercise sessions.

The first Eat, Make, Play on the playing field in 2018 attracted 200+ people and led to the launch of our community enterprise. Now we’re bringing it back for Summer 2019 and this year will be even bigger and better. Eat, Make, Play teamed up with Artscoop Central and Use-It Urban Innovation and of course, landowners Birmingham Settlement. Come and enjoy yourself, eat some tasty food, make something cool at one of our arts and crafts workshops and play all day!
