The centre, which runs art classes open to the public is currently holding an exhibition, All Our Own Work 2008, at the University' s Beldam Gallery, on Cleveland Road. The show features a selection of the artwork by those who attend the classes, many of which are in the evenings and at weekends.

Morag is a member of the Harrow Artists at Home group. She is now turning what began as a hobby into a profession by selling her work.
Other prize-winners include: Pip Jacobs, Marianne Hill, Susan Frankel, Gwyneth MacDonald and a Brunel student, Sampa Mulenga.
