Picture the Heath
‘Picture the Heath’ is a two-day annual drawing and painting event, a collaboration between Hampstead School of Art (HSoA) and Hampstead Summer Festival in North London on July 5th and 6th, 2014. The event is open to everyone and all ages. Saturday you draw and paint the Heath and on Sunday you exhibit the work. All work will be exhibited at the free exhibition at the Festival at Whitestone Pond NW3, 6 July 2014.
You are invited to work alongside Hampstead School of Art teachers/artists on the Heath, on Saturday 5 July, meeting at Whitestone Pond NW3 at 10:30am and again at 1:30pm, or walk to your chosen location and paint all day independently, or until you are satisfied with your work. As the artist, you are free to capture the spirit of Hampstead Heath and the surrounding area in any medium or size. It is a wonderful environment in which to paint. The historic Kenwood House, the Ponds, Heath Street and fabulous views of the city, an exhilarating juxtaposition of landscape and cityscape.
