Chelsea College of Arts degree students have just wrapped up their degree shows, accompanied by the first ever Late at Chelsea event hosted here at UAL. Students from all departments of Chelsea College of Arts showed a wide variety of artworks and exhibitions. Alongside the Degree Shows we hosted Late at Chelsea a free event here at Chelsea College of Arts which opened the College doors up to the public to take part in drop-in workshops, pop-up talks and enjoy a vibrant mix of art, music and film and to enjoy with food and drinks on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground.

The Short Courses Book Illustration Online Short Course tutor Zehra Hicks gave a short portrait workshop where students created portraits and entered them into a competition to win a Short Course. We also ran Graphic Design, Life Drawing and Book Binding workshops.

Zehra has a unique approach to illustration: making use of sticks, bamboo and potatoes to create her books, she does not allow herself to be limited to pencils and paint. She is currently working on her 7th picture book due to be published in January 2020 with Hodder.
