May at Keswick

Tony Hogan, "Catbells"

Our friends at the Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick have asked me to let you know that they have a series of events planned for the month of May. The demonstrations are suitable for beginners and intermediate levels, and are being offered Free as part of the Open learning Package at the Museum.

To kick off the month Robin Evans will be demonstrating with Graphite, Tinted Charcoal, and Ink. Robin is a highly talented illustrator and sketch artist, also known as “Evsie”, and has been living in Kendal since 2003. Robin has already established a client base and reputation in Kendal as: The Cartoonist. Robin is also a favourite at local outdoor shows, where he says his ambition is to “keep drawing and amusing people until I am 92, and then I might retire”. Robin will be at the Museum on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th May and the demonstrations run from 10am – 4pm.

On Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th May Coloured Pencil Artist Jenny Hill, will be teaching techniques specialising in Wildlife and Botanical drawing. Jenny concentrates on commission art, and will be teaching how to create animal features and tone and depth of a subject.

To finish the series, Professional Artist Tony Hogan, will be running a three day demonstration in the use of Pastel Pencils and Tinted Charcoal. Tony Hogan is a long established artist and is recognised for his “stunning paintings” of the Lake District, and his relaxed and easy way of teaching. His demonstrations are ideally suited for the beginner, who would like to learn the art of Pastel Pencil techniques. The demonstrations run from Tuesday 27th – Thursday 29th May.
Tony Hogan will also have a series of original framed paintings for sale in the Museum Gallery.
