D&D London are celebrating all things art this month to brighten up an otherwise gloomy January.

Lucky for us, two of the #BlankCanvas17 events are happening right on our doorstep – ‘Lunch and Life Drawing’ at Blueprint Cafe and ‘Exhibition of Works’ at Anise Gallery & Cantina Del Ponte.

Lunch and Life Drawing will take place on 22nd January, 2:30pm-6:00pm and will comprise of a 3 course set lunch and a glass of wine in the beautiful Blueprint Cafe, followed by a life drawing class hosted by Sophie Mason.  With views of the illuminated Tower Bridge in the background, this is a great way to unwind on a Sunday and exercise some creative flair.

Anise Gallery and Cantina del Ponte have collaborated to host the second Blank Canvas event on Thursday, 26th January, 6:30pm-9:30pm.  ‘Exhibition of Works’ will follow London Art Fair 2017 in the gallery and guests will begin the evening admiring the exhibition, meeting the artist, Alex Evans, and enjoying fine Italian Prosecco and canapes. Afterwards, an authentic Italian 3 course dinner will await at Cantina Del Ponte and no doubt some stimulating conversation with fellow art lovers.

Tickets for each event are £35 per person and booking is essential.
