Mindful Drawing in Nature

Saturday 06th May 2023 14:00 - 16:00

Join us on a relaxing mindful drawing session set in the natural surroundings of Ampthill Great Park. During this activity you will be guided on some simple drawing exercises to explore and tune in to the wonders of the natural world.

Ampthill Great Park is a beautiful place in the heart of Bedfordshire with over 150 acres of parkland and woodland to explore, as well as incredible views from the Greensand Ridge.

Please bring:

  • Something to sit on, such as a folding chair
  • Drawing materials – including paper or sketch book and a pen or pencil
  • Suitable clothing to keep you warm, dry and comfortable, plus footwear for uneven ground.
  • A bottle of water and any snacks you’d like

The session will be run by Steve Halton, who is an ecologist and wildlife artist who blends art and science in a creative way. He uses drawing, sketching and writing as a way of exploring the beauty and wonder of nature when outside through using a variety of media.

Open to all – no previous experience is needed.

Please note that Ampthill Great Park has some slopes and uneven ground. Please let us know if you have any mobility issues in advance of the session.
