All are very welcome to join Urban Sketchers Leicester - unofficial sketching along Leicester's historic New Walk and New Walk Museum on Saturday 28th April 2018.

New Walk Museum 53 New Walk, Leicester LE1 7EA
Open 11.00 am to 5.00pm
Café Open 11.00 am to 3.00pm

11.15am - Meet inside the main entrance foyer to New Walk Museum. The idea is to go off and draw outdoors along the pedestrianised New Walk or inside in the galleries in the museum.

1.30pm - Meet back at main foyer entrance of New Walk Museum to view work and take a group photo. Have lunch/ coffee in the cafe for those that would like to - it's a chance to chat, share tips and look at sketchpads, work etc and then head back out to draw.

3.30pm - Meet back at main entrance to have a look at the afternoon's work. Decide on the day if would like to go for coffee/ drink somewhere along the bottom of New Walk...

Bring your own drawing materials, stool, warm clothes and provisions etc. It is a chance to meet people in the community, sketch, chat, share tips - beginners/ experienced all welcome. Let us know if can make it or pop by on the day.

Directions: It is approximately ten minutes walk from Leicester City Centre and Leicester train station. Limited onsite parking. It has wheelchair access.
