Court Artist Priscilla Coleman is first artist to sketch inside an English courtroom during a hearing
FACE of the day: Court Artist Priscilla Coleman outside the Supreme Court where she had a brush with legal history today when she was allowed to sketch inside an English courtroom during a hearing.
Thursday October 10, 2013. Contempt of court rules prevent photographs being taken during hearings and stop artists making illustrations for publication. They are only allowed to make notes during hearings and they have to draw outside. But Supreme Court justices gave permission for Priscilla Coleman to draw inside the Supreme Court in London – the highest court in the UK – during an appeal hearing.
