BBC - PAINTING SHOW

The BBC are looking for the UK’s best amateur and semi-professional painters to be a part of a new series called School of Art which will air on BBC 1. During the programme, the candidates will enter an atelier system and be mentored by some of the leading names on the UK art scene. The programme filming takes place this summer and would be an amazing opportunity for someone wishing to bring their art to the next level or to a wider audience. It is open to anyone residing in the UK who is over the age of 16. Any more information can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/takepart/bbc_painting_show
