What we’re about

LONDON SHOAL OF ART MEETUP runs classes and events in London, suitable for all levels of skill. for all of you who want to draw and paint together. We welcome beginners, happily showing you simple ways to start, and as you develop your skills you can learn about lots of different techniques and approaches. For experienced artists, there are stimulating examples and discussion points from historical and contemporary art and art theory. I provide demonstrations for everyone, and one to one tuition to help you develop and reflect on your practise. We allow time for people to share their work and chat as well as to learn and to make art together.

Class fees range from £10 to £15. Some events are free. Please see the individual listings for details.

We have been getting together in London for over 10 years. The word SHOAL in our name denotes "a large group of people or things" (Collins British English). It has a softer sound than "school" and feels calmer than the "swarm" image that Meetup chose for their logo. Our meetup numbers are actually small at the moment, but we aim to grow, so please join us!
