A new artist-led initiative beginning with a series of daily activities on Instagram and Facebook @a.labourne. Take a fresh look at the natural world through drawing, with artist Aimee Labourne. Join us for a series of online creative activities exploring drawing and nature! Here in Shetland, 'Da Voar' in dialect simply means spring - a time for renewal and also for preparing for the coming year. In a similar way, processes of drawing encourage renewed looking and close observation of nature, as well as ways to 'think on paper' and share ideas. 

To start creative connections in the north east of Scotland, participation is welcomed from individuals based in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Orkney or Shetland who have a drawing practice or interest in drawing.

No formal art experience or education is required! So whether you are a professional artist or make art in your spare time, this is an opportunity to allow new ideas about drawing and nature to grow.

FREE | Simply draw along and use #DaVoarDraw to share your work on Instagram and Facebook. You can also post in the event discussion or in the comments below each activity post on Facebook.

Free starter materials packs are also available!

→ To request a pack please complete the form using the link below by FRIDAY 7th MAY. ←

Numbers of packs are limited, but you can use your own drawing materials to join in if you have them. We will be using a simple range of materials – drawing / mixed-media paper, a small range of pencils (e.g. 2H, HB, 3B, 5B), charcoal, white chalk and a sepia-toned sketching pencil.
