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.

MONDAY MORNINGS / WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS

This is a self directed group who assist one another in mastering new techniques. Participants sketch from slides shown in class plus the occasional video that further develops their skills. New participants are welcome. Recent experience in sketching is essential.
