Lo que hacemos

This is a group for anyone fascinated in the arts collections here in London and those wanting to get more involved - either learning more about specific artists or practicing some art techniques yourself!

If you're an art lover, artist or just really interested in hearing unusual and intriguing talks about specific paintings and famous or not so well known artists in the local London museums and art galleries then this is the group for you!

Join our Facebook group: London Art Museum Creatives (https://www.facebook.com/groups/LondonArtMuseumCreatives/)

If you're a creative person and really want to explore your imagination in creative activities then consider joining in and taking a few art lessons with new friends! I assure you that you don't need to have previous experience and it's totally fun and laid back! (I'm also a very kind and encouraging teacher....so don't be afraid!)

I'm making an effort to arrange different and interesting events at different times/days to try to accommodate everyone with different schedules. Some are £2 events for just socialising and others are £5, £10 or £12 events where I teach or give a lecture.

I'm a professional international artist with over twenty years experience practicing and exhibiting in the arts in Europe and the US.

If you're interested in what I do professionally then please feel free to check out my website: http://www.toothpickmoon.com

I also write an art related blog: http://www.toothpickmoon.com/toothpickmoon-zine which is updated Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays.

I also work as an art tutor mostly for young adults working on art exams or portfolio requirements for art school. If you are interested in my private tutoring then please send me an email: toothpickmoon@gmail.com (https://www.toothpickmoon.com/contact.html)

For the best experience with Meet-Up, please download the App for your phone so you can be up to date on any changes or any upcoming events.

*The fees for paid events in this group will go towards my teaching & time, any materials I offer to participants and the maintenance of this group.

**If you're unemployed please contact me for concessions for any events you're interested in.

- The image of the boat for our group image is an ink drawing of mine of a Viking ship at sea. I thought it was appropriate to a group of people voyaging out to make new friends! Sometimes daunting but often fun!

Exhibition Visit: Rembrandt's Light at Dulwich Picture Gallery!

Dulwich Picture Gallery

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!

Inktober Illustration Social & Brainstorming Meetup!

Barbican Centre

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
