Art and craft

A class specifically developed to provide a creative outlet for people with a disability. The focus of the class is independence through social interaction and self- expression. Participants work alongside an artist exploring a range of art mediums such as painting, paper mache, bead-making, printing, fabric painting, sculpture and lots more.

The aim of each program is that it be ‘participant-driven’, meaning that each member of the group has a say in the artistic direction of the program.

Paper Tole is a paper craft using a number of prints, all of the same image, which are cut out and layered up to create a life-like three dimensional picture. All facets of the craft are taught in class - from cutting, shaping & feathering to building up and glossing the end picture.
