An art group is encouraging artists and residents to get involved in an annual event.
Art Group Wanstead is due to host the fifth Art Trail Wanstead, which sees work displayed in high street shops, businesses and community centres.
Artists can get involved by joining the group for free and then paying £20 to display their work on the trail.
Art forms can include paintings, drawings, textiles, glass art, sculptures and ceramic work.
Enrolment will take place on Monday from 6-7.30pm at the Wanstead House Community Centre, on The Green.
A meeting from 7.30pm onwards, which will be open to new members, will include the opportunity to ask questions.
Residents can also get involved in the trail through the HomeFront project, which is encouraging adults and children to create art in their own front gardens or display work in their windows.
There is an optional theme of Make Art Not War to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
Participants will only need to display an art trail poster and they will be invited to send in photos of their displays.
The trail will take place from September 6 to 21, with enrolment £25 for anyone who registers late.
