London Shoal of Art Meetup Pages

I called the group “Shoal” in contrast to “School” because in a shoal the fish swim somewhat independently but in a school they all swim in the same direction.

I am running quite a few events each week, so if you want to manage the volume of emails you receive, please click on "My profile" in the top right corner of Shoal of Art meetup page and then on "Email and notifications".

If you need to speak to me you can reach me on 07939 346 930
