Roy was living at a hostel run by charity Centrepoint when he attended First Impressions, a self portraiture art workshop run by The National Gallery in conjunction with Go Figurative. Roy excelled and Go Figurative introduced him to Heatherleys School of Fine Art where he was awarded a bursary and is currently studying full time for a portraiture diploma.
David Downes, who has high functioning austism and is represented by Go Figurative, has been awarded a bursary for The Heatherley's School of Fine Art where he works as artist in residence.
Go Figurative is committed to developing a programme of art workshops for people on the margins of society to use art as a means of skills development and personal expression.
First Impressions developed for Centrepoint by Go Figurative and The National Gallery used Dutch Masterpieces from within the Gallery's collection as inspiration for self portraits.
Go Figurative also runs life drawing classes for City workers who want to learn a new skill.
