Rosetta Arts Hub
Every second Thursday of the month, we will be setting up a Rosetta Arts Hub in Canning Town library between 10-11.30am. It will be a welcoming space for anyone to come and find out what the local creative community are doing in Newham and how to get involved! So, this month, come by Thursday 9th April for a coffee and a creative chat!
Story of an Artist: Mantas Tumosa
“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!
Artwork of the week:

RAC students explore Greek beauty at The British Museum
“I felt the power of Greek Sculpture and it’s influence on the world” said Sadique Rahman, a ceramic student who attended with a group of Rosetta’s students from ceramics, painting, fashion and photography, invited by The British Museum to explore their new exhibition Defining beauty for free.
Interested to attend the next exhibition?
We have a very select amount of tickets for current Rosetta Art Centre students to attend a preview of the next exhibition Indigenous Australia at The British Museum. If you would like to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place.
