Lively Landscapes with Rosie May

Heritage Open Day Workshops

Art work by Rosie May

Saturday 18 September


Donations, no matter how small, help to keep Milton Keynes Arts Centre operating and providing creative opportunities for our communities. Please donate whatever you can.

Who is this workshop suitable for?
Suitable families of all ages and any level of experience.

What will be covered in the class?
Join illustrator Rosie May for a fun observational drawing workshop turning what you see in the surroundings of Milton Keynes Arts Centre into lively characters!

From initial sketches you will think about how to characterise what you’ve drawn using prompts provided by the artist.

If that tree or building had a face what would it be like?

What clothes would it wear?

How would all of the things in the scene interact?

Would the birds talk to the cars, the trees talk to the insects?

Watch as your scene starts to come to life!
What will I need to bring?
You may wish to bring a sketchbook to draw designs and make notes. Aprons or coveralls should be worn at all times, along with hair-ties and closed-toe shoes.

Great Linford Manor Park Courtyard. This activity is outdoors and weather permitting.

Rosie May is a Freelance Illustrator currently based in Northampton. Her personal practice largely focuses on the commonplace aspects of our everyday experience, a theme which has continued to resonate with her since her final year at Winchester School of Art. Channeling childlike wonder into a naive visual style, Rosie uses illustration as a vehicle to challenge us to relish life equally in its most ordinary moments as we do at its most dynamic.

Photographs and/or video will be taken during this workshop
