All are welcome to join the Urban Sketchers Leicester - unofficial group sketching on the University of Leicester Main Campus, University Road, Leicester LE1 7RH on 10th March 2018. The main campus is 1 mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park. It features a range of interesting buildings, from late Georgian provincial style (the Grade II listed Fielding Johnson building (originally the Leicestershire and Rutland County Lunatic Asylum)), to several notable examples of Brutalist architecture, including the Grade II listed Engineering building and the Charles Wilson building.
Start: David Wilson Library
12.00pm - Meet in front of the David Wilson Library (or just inside if wet weather). Go off and draw the wonderfully varied and interesting architecture on campus. Urban Sketchers also have access to the Seminar Room on 2nd floor of David Wilson Library for views across the campus.
2.30pm - Meet back outside David Wilson Library for group photo.
2.35-3.00pm - Meet in the ground floor library cafe (to confirm on the day) to look at work, share sketchbooks & tips etc.
Bring your own drawing materials. Beginners/experienced all welcome. Let us know if you can make it, or just come along on the day.
How to get there: University Road can be accessed from London Rd, Welford Rd, and via New Walk. Parking: there is limited on street parking, but vehicles can park in the University Medical Sciences car park to the left of the Attenborough Arts Centre on Lancaster Rd (just a few minutes from main campus centre).
