During the last Artist Open House festival in May, Derek Henry held a series of Encaustic Painting Workshops at the studio ‘One Sussex Mews’. They attracted many visitors who subsequently looked at and occasionally purchased artwork in the studio.
On the BBC4 Today program, they recently announced that the government is encouraging drawing in schools as part of its drive to improve art education. Kirsteen from Keep Art at Home (New Open House 2022) and Derek will be holding portrait drawing workshops during the Kemptown Arts 2022 Summer Exhibition in Saint Georges Church from August 1–6. Most people like watching artists draw, primarily when they use easy-to-understand language about the drawing process. (Self portrait by Loraine Hayes)
