Summer evening sketching 2017

Join us for some summer evening sketching, meeting from 6pm to 8pm. Use the opportunity of light summer evenings to draw London’s riverside. We will take advantage of London’s unrivalled arts and entertainment scene, along the South Bank. These will be busy locations – make the most of the opportunity for quick sketches of people and performances.
All events are free, no need to book, just turn up with your art kit.
We have planned three evenings:


BANKSIDE AND TATE MODERN


Time and date to meet: 6pm to 8pm, Friday 21 July 2017
Meet at 6pm to start and 8pm to finish by the outdoor seating alongside Tate Modern near the riverside (see photograph below). If wet, meet just inside the Tate Modern Turbine Hall


On the South Bank near Tate Modern we can draw city buildings, the Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge, passers-by, buskers, and the boats on the river.
If it rains, we can draw inside Tate Modern, open until 10pm on Fridays

Inside and outside the Southbank Centre and Festival Hall and along the river there are summer events. We can draw passers-by and visitors, an urban beach, fountains, skateboarding, stalls and sculpture. Cross Waterloo Bridge to draw the courtyard of Somerset House on the other side of the river.

THE SCOOP, CITY HALL AND TOWER BRIDGE

The Scoop is an open air performance area near City Hall, on the South Bank, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. There is a free performance at the Scoop: The Odyssey (this is in three parts: 6pm, 7.30pm, 9pm, and is running from 9 August to 3 September). We can draw the performance, the audience and passers-by, the Tower of London across the river, Tower Bridge, boats including HMS Belfast, or the modern City skyline. If it rains, there is some shelter at City Hall and nearby bars, or we could draw inside Hays Galleria.
