The Arty Footsteps Experience is a unique opportunity to walk, explore and draw in the Breamish Valley in Northumberland National Park. The idea behind the Experience, is to encourage the traveller to slow down and take some time to stand and stare at the landscape around them. By slowing down, you can use that time to observe in a way that an artist observes and the creativity naturally follows on. To help you draw, we provide the artist's materials you will need. To nourish you, we bring you a picnic, made up from local Northumberland produce. To nourish your soul, we share the beautiful Breamish Valley with you as we walk beside its river and explore the valley through which it flows. Jane, our artist and Patrick our guide will be with you for the whole Experience. Ingram Village Hall is our indoor base for the day if it is needed, a safe haven on a rainy day. Otherwise, the great outdoors will be our home, as you our guest walk, explore and draw on our Arty Footsteps Experience.
