Workshops for RAC Students

Story of an Artist: Mantas Tumosa

Ue_jemwnLB1p9eLC3wr7F1-IpIRgRetSYeMVBKr7_E7FwdXa__z4iNWj6B-ULMeEdRURY61HGTv8gNj9hROCuOy0UXIBLi9uZcSpa7wn3SJCtyM8wgUd5hnJDoq0yGgGDCWhJs79MA2JJ4ruuekrz3uSFe6fWpZwQM6CVk4=s0-d-e1-ft

“Rosetta helped me to develop a vast range of drawing and painting techniques which supported me to find my feet as an artist – studying there gave me the confidence in my art and practice. I always know I can talk to them for advice and support in the differant stages of my creative development.”

Mantas studied with Rosetta Art Centre for over 2 years and since ventured on his own as a freelance visual artist. But like many of RAC’s former students  still involved and championed through our Newham Visual Artist Network.

Mantas recently was selected by Rosetta Art Centre as a commissioned portrait painter for the Poet in the City auction, where a highly competitive bid was commanded for his work!
