Urban Sketching Group

Artist in residence

Every day we walk down the same streets and visit the same places, yet how often do we forget to take a good look around us? It is only when we take the time to appreciate our surroundings that we start to notice new features and intricate details that we can’t believe we didn’t see before.

Local Artist in Residence, Fiona Fleming would like to invite you to take a fresh new look at the streets and buildings of Govan and join her Urban Sketching Group. Whether a total beginner or more experienced artist, you can learn or brush up on your sketching skills, whilst looking at Govan in a new light.

When – Thursdays from 1pm onwards (Starts 17th September)
Where – Meet at the Portal AIR Space – 974 Govan Road, Glasgow G51 3AJ
Contact – For further information, contact Fiona Fleming on 07826 112 502.

  1. Sorry Fiona for not staying today, hopefully see you next week. Totally impressed by your ‘works’ though, brilliant. A wee request, though, I would be most appreciative if you could sketch my garden before the flowers drop off for winter. No 9 Elder street, I won the Govan Housing Assn prize for best garden in govan this year. Looks nice at the moment, should take a walk round and have a wee look.

  2. Hi Boab,
    We will pass your message on to Fiona – I’m sure she will be flattered by the request. Congratulations, once again, on the prize for your garden – it really is a ray of sunshine!!
    Best wishes
