Let's meet up for a casual get together to wander the William Morris Gallery and then socialise and get to know each other in the cafe afterwards. £2 fee to attend - payable in cash on the day. This goes towards my organiser fee and maintenance of this group. Let's meet just inside the main entrance at 2pm - I look like my profile picture - Text me if you can't see me: [masked] I look forward to seeing you there!
I'm really keen to visit the current exhibition of Rembrandt's Light at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. As an oil painter myself, his work has always deeply inspired my own work so I feel like this visit could help to keep the inspiration flowing in my own studio practice now. It would be lovely to have other creatives join me! Here's a bit about the exhibition: "This landmark exhibition celebrates 350 years since his death with 35 of his iconic paintings, etchings and drawings, including major international loans from The Louvre and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Arranged thematically, Rembrandt’s Light will take you on a journey from high drama and theatricality, to the contemplative and spiritual, showcasing his use of light." Tickets: Free for Friends & Under 18s; Standard admission £16.50*. Includes audioguide. Book online and save £1.50 off your ticket (excludes concessions). Concessions £8* (Unemployed, Disabled, Student, Art Fund, Museums Association Members). Here's the link to book online for the 24th of October: https://my.dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk/timeslot/4654/rembrandt I'm booking my ticket for 2pm on the 24th of October so if you'd like to join me at the same time then be sure to book soon while tickets are available. If the time isn't available then book the closest one and we'll arrange to meet afterwards. *Meet me just inside the main entrance to the gallery at 1:45pm - I look like my picture - text if you can't see me: [masked] After the exhibition, let's meet up in a nearby cafe for refreshments and conversation and to discuss what we've seen. I look forward to seeing you there!
Just for October (Inktober) I thought it would be a great idea to set up a regular social/support meetup for those illustrators/artists who are participating in Inktober this year. For those new to Inktober: It was initially set up by Mr. Jake Parker in 2009 as he wanted to improve his inking skills - since then it has turned into a world wide event that brings artists together for one month only! How to do Inktober: Pick up a pen and begin to draw - post your creation online (instagram is best) and use these hashtags - @JakeParker @Inktober #Inktober #Inktober2019 To follow the prompts for 2019 go to this link: https://inktober.com/rules We'll meet once a week in the evening at the Barbican Centre cafe and brainstorm, offer guidance, share ideas and get to know each other in person and online too so I do hope you'll consider joining in even if you are not quite sure what Inktober is! All levels welcome!! *Meet me just inside the Barbican entrance on Silk Street at 7pm - I look like my profile picture and will be wearing a black meetup t-shirt - text if lost: [masked] Once we're all together we'll either find a place to sit in the cafe or the Barbican Kitchen so any late comers, please check both or look for comments posted by me as to our location. Feel free to share your sketchbooks/drawings with everyone - any technique/material advice would also be welcome especially if we have new illustrators among us! Or come to draw while socialising if that is something you enjoy too. Look forward to seeing you there! Franceska Organiser
Every two weeks, Friday evenings at the Victoria & Albert Museum! I'm offering to teach anyone who would like to draw at the Victoria & Albert museum. All levels welcome. ---Please bring a sketchbook and selection of pencils, an eraser and portable pencil sharpener. It helps if your sketchbook has a hard back so you can have support for your drawing--- (if you forget materials, you can purchase them in the shop) I'm a professional artist and also experienced art teacher and offer lessons in perspective, composition, proportion and relationships. I use the methods and techniques of Raphael, Giacometti and Maurice de Sausmarez and teach to a very high standard.

I'll be standing facing the door. I have dark blonde hair, rectangular glasses and will be carrying a canvas bag with a skeleton on it. If you will be running late or can't find me then please text my mobile:[masked] (I won't respond if you call, please text only) Cost is £10 per person.
