Art workshops this autumn

Claire – by Julian Gordon Mitchell

Julian Gordon Mitchell, an artist who’s exhibited at the Royal Academy, will be hosting a series of events at the West Hampstead Community Centre over the next few weeks. The first one is this Friday evening and it’s a workshop.

Stepby-Step Portrait Drawing starts at 8pm, (get there at 7.30). Julian will explain the steps involved in developing a realistic portrait from life. All levels of experience and ability are apparently welcome (this is clearly a man who hasn’t seen me wield a paintbrush).

It’s a tenner to join in and you need to book by contacting Cindy on 07904 088341 (moc.g1511033122nitlu1511033122snoca1511033122mtira1511033122l@tro1511033122ppus1511033122) or Laraine on 07703 192695 (ku.oc1511033122.liam1511033122toh@r1511033122b.ara1511033122l1511033122).

There are three more events:
Sun 11th November – Lecture: “The Entire History of Art”
Fri 30th November – Workshop: “Painting a Portrait”
Sun 2nd December – Lecture: “Pickled Sharks and all that”

Julian has been lecturing and teaching art in local schools and colleges for many years, and – as an aside – his grandfather is Arthur Croft Mitchell whose painting Interior of a Religious House is currently featured in the Your Paintings section on the BBC website.
