Art on a Thursday, South London and Maudsley Hospital
I set up and ran a weekly art group for older adults on a mental health ward at South London and Maudsley Hospital, which ran for a year in 2015.
The group catered for individuals with little to no exposure to art making, and individuals with a range of conditions. The goal was to provide and help them engage in a creative activity. Participants gained the opportunity to learn new skills, challenge themselves, and freely express themselves.
Art from the sessions are displayed above and include portraiture, abstraction, weaving with wool, clay and colour, chiming with nature and watercolour.
Saturday Arts Club, Brixton Community Base
I set up and ran the Saturday Arts Club at Brixton Community Base, between 2012 and 2014.
The club catered for 6-11 year olds in the local area, and the goal was to provide them with an outlet to explore different types of art making, be inspired and make new friends.
Art works from workshops are displayed in the images to the left and include: mask making, storytelling, mixed media, create your own city).
