Art Students Join Manchester Urban SketchersDate Posted: 26/11/2018 | Posted In: A Level, College News, Student News
A Level Fine Art students and the BTEC yr 1 students joined the Manchester Urban Sketchers group for an afternoon sketch session inside the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. The Urban Sketchers group is an international community of artists who draw on location. Bolton Sixth Form College Art Teacher Ruth Freeman is also a member of this group. Students were able to meet the artist, architect and senior lecturer in Interior design at Manchester Metropolitan University Simone Ridyard, who is the co-founder of the Manchester group. The trip was to support their current project entitled ‘people and places’ brief. Students produced some excellent sketches and were able to capture the ambience of the space exceptionally well.
