Drawing forms the foundation of the fine arts. It is a skill like any other – reading, writing, driving, swimming – and you can learn that skill. I run Can’t Draw, a course that teaches you the skills to draw accurately.

Sunday, 3rd August, is the day things happen in West Norwood. The Portico Gallery, 23a Knight’s Hill has gathered forty local movers and shakers to show West Norwood and its neighbours what an amazing, vital community bubbles through the streets. Together with the monthly Feast, it makes West Norwood the place to be this Sunday.
Today I went to the Hayward Gallery to see Human Factor, an exhibition of sculptures of human bodies made by 25 contemporary artists. It is magnificent – haunting, shocking, beautiful. I have come away feeling like I have been given a gift. It is showing until the 7th September. www.southbankcentre.co.uk/venues/hayward-gallery
London’s Urban Art Fair hits the streets again on July 12th and 13th 2014.
This Saturday the London Naked Bike Riders ride through London to protest against car culture and oil dependence and to demonstrate how vulnerable cyclists are on the road. It’s also a celebration of body freedom and a lot of fun! You don’t need to be completely naked, just go “as pare as you dare” – eg most people wear shoes. South London starts in West Norwood and Clapham Junction. Ride, Support, Encourage, Enjoy. For more information http://
The ability to draw can be learned just as you learned to read and write.
I run a course called Can’t Draw! in response to all those exclamations uttered by those who were never taught. It is 30 hours of tuition over 6 weekly sessions on Saturdays at The Portico Gallery in West Norwood. You can find out more by looking at www.cantdraw.co.uk. The fee for this course is £200.
I will run a course over six weeks June 21st – July 26th if 10 people commit to attend. Deadline for booking is 7th June so if you would like to take part, email me on email@example.com. Take control!
