In the summer, outdoor sketching days give members the opportunity to work together in attractive and inspiring locations. Outdoor sketching days start at 10am and end about 4pm. There is no cost and you will need to bring your own materials.

We will generally meet for coffee at the time stated for each venue and then at about 12:30 stop for lunch, either sandwiches or at a café or pub. Those who wish to do the afternoon only can meet us between 12:30 and 1:15 at the lunch venue. Please note we meet on different days each week.
