This month, we're delighted that Richard Pikesley PNEAC RWS took a break from preparations for our Annual Exhibition in June to tell us about his art training; his time as NEAC President (as he approaches the end of his five-year term); and what he plans on doing with all that extra spare time . . .

During our 2018 Annual Exhibition we have an exciting and varied range of events to suit all interests and abilities, including a limited number of workshops with a ticket price of just £5 (+ booking fee). The usual price of these events is £50+ so this is a great opportunity to experience New English Classes & Workshops on a shoestring.
