Think you can’t draw? Artscapes will show you how. Led by a specialist guide who is both an art historian and artist, this experience will give you the tools you need to try your hand at sketching the Thames and the buildings that line it. You'' walk through the historic streets of Chelsea eventually finding yourself by the river to closely examine how 19th century artists including Sargent, Whistler and Turner created poetic, evocative images of the Thames, focusing on their brushwork and colour palette.
