Hands on Art

 Hands on Art

This group is aimed at adults with learning disabilities. Most people attending come with support, but we have experienced volunteers able to help with participating in the sessions (we cannot provide personal care).

Hands on Art is exactly that – we encourage our participants to use and improve their fine motor skills and creativity. Clare, our resident artist, selects projects where people can produce a piece of artwork to take home, for example we have produced calendars and jute bags. We are also joined on a ortnightly basis by two retired Drama Teachers with many years experience. Rob and Wynne include the group in music and movement activities – focussing on gentle execise, role play, group games and lots of fun!!

There is a small charge of £4.50  per session to cover the materials used, we can arrange to charge people from their personal budget where required. We can cater for certain dietary requirements.

Self Portraits

We looked at our faces and drew each other! Three people drew Danny!! We explored facial expressions and what they mean.

 

Chinese New Year

We all found out the animal for the year we were born and used stencils and chalk pastels to create images.

 

Jute Bags

People drew around their own hands and embellished the designs. Darren said he was going to use his to hold his knitting.
