We are delighted to be part of the Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend this June and invite you to create your own artworks as we walk in the footsteps of the artists who lived and worked in bohemian Chelsea.
Led by a specialist guide who is both an art historian and artist, this experience will give you the tools you need to try your hand at sketching the Thames and the buildings that line it. We’ll walk through the historic streets of Chelsea eventually finding ourselves by the river to closely examine how 19th century artists including Sargent, Whistler and Turner created poetic, evocative images of the Thames, focusing on their brushwork and colour palette.
Our guide will give you to tools to understand that, yes, you can draw! She’ll help with composition, perspective, light and shade and by the end of the tour you’ll be finding it easy. You’ll leave with your own beautifully created set of postcards to keep or send to friends and family.
