Diana Ali (BA Hons Fine Art 2001) is appearing as a mentor in the BBC’s Big Painting Challenge, which returns to our screens this February.The show features ten amateur artists who undertake an intensive six-week artistic ‘boot camp’ to perfect their painting skills and to get crowned the overall champion.
Diana and fellow mentor, Pascal Anson, guide the contenders through various painting challenges, with the final works being judged by members of the public and an expert panel to decide who is eliminated.
Also appearing as a presenter on the show is Mariella Frostrup, who received an honorary degree from NTU in 2008 in recognition of her outstanding contribution and commitment to journalism and broadcasting.
