'Artists & Illustrators' June 2015

As ever, your friendly neighbourhood Deeside and Grove Park Learning Zones carry a good selection of Arts journals, keeping tabs on contemporary matters and developments in the creative industries, those vital components of a healthy society.

Amongst other features, the June issue of ‘Artists & Illustrators’ offers step-by-step practical advice in creating a self-portrait. In these days of the ubiquitous ‘selfie’, instantly snapped with a phone or tablet device, why not be inspired to take up pencils and/or brushes and paint (or, indeed, any media of your choice) instead and have a go at a harder-won image? We recommend you do, for the enrichment of your soul.
