The Blue Drawing Room as seen from Joe’s piano (image taken from Buckingham Palace’s website) was the stunning setting for a 70-strong dinner hosted by the Prince of Wales on June 11 2015. The event was to celebrate the Prince’s Drawing School and the school said they were glad to have an artist as well as a musician playing the piano.
The Prince’s Drawing school (Previously the Royal Drawing School) helps young artists overcome difficulties and develops their skills by giving them intensive drawing tuition. At the Palace dinner, Joe was most struck by a struggling art graduate who had been drawing on grease-proof paper behind a chip shop counter when he received the text that he had been accepted into the prince’s Drawing School. A life-changing moment.
