Regular Groups and Upcoming Events 2018
A monthly group exploring nature on Ashdown Forest by drawing and recording the detail of what we see. The session will be an opportunity to slow down and really look at what is around us. We will use exercises to increase our observation skills and engage our curiosity and wonder about the natural world as well as learning more about the flora of the Forest.
The group is open to all adults. No experience or skill in drawing required. Please bring a note book and something to draw with.
