Annual Exhibition Workshop with Neil Pittaway NEAC RWS RE

Neil Pittaway NEAC RWS will show you how to study and interpret work directly from the New English exhibition through your own painting and drawing. You will also be shown how sketchbooks can be used to create ideas and collect information. 

About your tutor:  Neil Pittaway is well known for his complex drawings, etchings and paintings. His works are in many public and private collections including the Royal collection, V&A Museum, and the Ashmolean Museum. He is also a member of the Royal Watercolour Society.
