Sketch Walk with Boom! Studios

Bangor’s landscape is about to change, and this is an opportunity to document the town through the eyes of local artists.
Artists and makers are invited to an alfresco art session, a "sketch walk" starting at Brompton and moving along the beautiful coast finishing at Queen’s Parade.
This will be a guided walk taking in local viewpoints, landmarks and places of interest covering landscape, heritage, history and architecture with opportunities to sketch as you go.
Suitable for amateur and professional artists with some drawing experience
Please bring your chosen materials to sketch. Some drawing pads/pencils will be available on the day.
