Green Stories

This is an intensive drawing sketching workshop where we will tell the green stories of the Oxford areas we visit, running during Oxford’s annual Green Week in June. The course is taught by three urban sketching tutors: Isabel Carmona, Victor Swasky and Luis Ruiz with experience on storytelling through drawing and painting.  They are the team from Pushing your Skectching Boundaries with experience in on location drawing workshops.

We have approached various groups in Oxford to engage with their work and their approach to creating a greener, more sustainable future for our planet. We will be based at a couple of locations where the green stories get close together and we can tell their approaches to their environment and people. Specifically, we will spend the morning around Rosehill Community Centre in South East Oxford and the afternoons around Lady Margaret Hall to the North of the City Centre. Both have done recent architectural and environmental projects to reduce their impact and engage their communities. Other projects also call our attention in each area, including a low carbon group, a deep retrofit private housing project, a cooperative housing project and a passive house standard non domestic building and everywhere multiple inclusion of renewables and other green strategies to reduce our footprint in this planet. We are going to tell loads of Green Stories as well as discovering a variety of approaches to sustainability.

As part of the workshop we will put together an exhibition of our work and show it at one or more of the venues, opening it to the public on the Sunday 24th June for all to see the green stories we have collected during the week.
