Sketchout provides a range of 1-day drawing workshops, making use of the visual and cultural wealth of London. The drawing and sketching workshops take place in London’s most beautiful, inspiring and culturally vibrant hotspots. Rosa and her Sketchout tutors are passionate, experienced and articulate, providing regular and specific guidance and support.
The classes are kept small giving plenty of 1-to-1 tuition for each student. All levels of drawing are welcome, including artistic capability from complete beginner to artistic/creative professional. This is possible because tuition is very individual. Adult workshops are open to anyone over sixteen or children over ten with adult accompaniment.
