Picturesque walk takes city route

Have your say

EXPERIENCED and novice artists will be welcome to take an art walk around a city.

The event will take place in Durham on Saturday, starting from Pennyferry Bridge, next to The Sands car park, at 10am.

The two-mile walk will be led by artist Sophy Nixon and will offer the chance to stop and draw and pick up top tips to improve pictures.

Artists will need a sketch pad, pen and pencil and something to sit on.

The cost is £4 per person or £10 for a family ticket.

A full list of guided walks and an events programme can be downloaded at It details a range of walks, covering routes from two miles up to 10 miles, with festive events in the run-up to Christmas.

Some are aimed at photographers, but there are also family sessions with quizzes in store.
