CAPTURING A WALK IN SPRING - OSMOTHERLEY - SATURDAY 6TH MAY
"Beauty in art is truth bathed in the impression, the emotion that is received from nature...seek truth and exactitude, but with the envelope of sentiment which you felt at first".
Jean Baptiste Camille Corot
This is time to connect with the beauty of the vast landscapes and seek the textures of the smallest hidden moss or record the metallic dew edges of grass, documenting the uncomplicated design of nature 'as is'. A time to feel the elements on our face, to look up, to look down and in and in and explore as we walk along the varied footways.
The pathway is to awaken our senses, to re-engage and with the inspiring details of nature, be curious and be creative.
It is suggested you capture the observations of the day with your camera phone, perfect for forming new galleries for social media. You may wish to bring a sketchbook and a pocket full of your favourite drawing media to capture landscapes, textures and colour and a small notebook to document words that come to mind as your senses awaken. Today is also about spending time with others, new introductions of friendship and taking pleasure in embracing creativity together. This walk is beyond beautiful and as the pathways climb and wind and dip, you will feel a deep routed connection with enriching and inspiring layers of details. It is indeed a creative journey.
Through-out the day we will walk approximately 3 miles in gentle stages. This will be layered with plenty of visual rests, for you to gather your thoughts, record and create in the most beautiful inspiring spots of Cod Beck Reservoir.
THIS DAY IS FOR YOU...
This day is for anyone who feels a need to escape into their own creative world.
