Hartlepool Art Gallery, Christ Church, Church Square, Hartlepool, 7.00pm to 9.00pm (doors open 6.40pm).

We welcome Jo Pickering, who will demonstrate painting a portrait in acrylic.

Jo studied art at Cleveland College of Art and then went on to study for an honours degree in art at Dundee University. She completed a PGCE course in 1991 and became a secondary school art teacher. She also tutors in portrait painting and holds a range of painting workshops. Jo loves painting portraits. Strong portrait images conveying a range of emotions intrigue her and she creates a mix between abstract styles and realism in her paintings. She has exhibited her work numerous times and is available for commission pieces.

Visitors are welcome at £5.00 per head.
