Live Horse Drawing Workshops

Hello!  Join us for a one-of-a-kind live horse drawing workshop! 

I'm hosting this event as an experienced contemporary wildlife and equine artist as well as art educator.  
Set in a beautiful rural location (with a café, toilet facilities and parking), this workshop is designed to help artists at all levels improve their skills and gain confidence drawing horses (or any other living person or animal).

During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to draw from a living breathing horse in various stances, both still and in motion. I'll be on hand to provide guidance and tips on anatomy, proportion, and explore expressive drawing techniques. You will also have the chance to ask questions and receive individual
feedback on your drawings.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced artist, this
workshop is the perfect opportunity to hone and improve your skills.
Don't miss out on this unique and
exciting event and go home with some exciting artwork ready to
pop in a frame. Adults 15+ only.
