Artist Workshop: Looking Through

Tuesday, September 1, 2015 - 10:30 to 15:30

Booking: Booking required. Please contact the museum.

£24.00  (Members); £26.00  (Non-Members).

Using the Turner’s Wessex exhibition as a starting point, artist Louise Luton of Plain Arts Salisbury will lead a workshop looking at key aspects of Turner’s work, his approach and sketches. Louise will take the fear out of where to start with a sketch, how to add a wash of colour and how to work up to a final painting. If the weather is kind, there will also be the opportunity to sketch outside the Museum in Cathedral Close.

To see Louise’s work, please visit her website . This workshop is suitable for artist of all abilities. Please bring a packed lunch, or lunch is available to purchase at The King’s House Cafe.

Louise has suggested bringing the following to her workshop:


  • Good quality paper in a size of your choice (A5 - A2) (Louise recommends small starting sketches of A5 and a more formal sketch in A3)
  • A 2B pencil
  • Something to lean on if you are working on loose paper rather an a sketch book

In addition you might choose to bring:

  • Sketch books
  • Pencils from as hard as HB to as soft as 8B
  • Charcoal
  • Watercolour paper, watercolour pencils, or paints
  • A chair or blanket to sit on outdoors
