Members Sketching Programme

PAW Festival Members Sketching Programme 2020

The PAW sketching group is currently meeting with up to 6 people as per Government guidelines, but this could change as the guidelines change. If you’re interested in taking part please contact Penny Barker by email

The meetings last about three hours on a Tuesday morning in a variety of locations chosen for the different sketching opportunities they offer. We are so lucky in having such an exciting range of places to draw in Purbeck. Artists work in a variety of media: drawing, sketching and painting – even collage!

We don’t meet in August, because several of us have family to stay, or childminding responsibilities.

  • To participate in these sessions, you must either be a member of the Isle of Purbeck Arts Club or a current member of PAW to be covered by our insurance
  • At the moment according to the government up to six people can meet outside at two meters apart
  • Penny will email all the people on her list on the Friday beforehand each week, and the first five people to email me back will have a place for that week
  • Obviously, this is all subject to change, as government restrictions may change
  • Please bring your own refreshments and something to sit on
