Art @ Buckingham

01 JUL 2016


Last week Chapter 1 in Buckingham organised an art session for tenants and other people.  Leading the time was artist Debs Last who runs a local art school but for this and another session in September she is giving her time for free.

 Most of those attending started out the morning with no drawing experience at all.  Two hours later everyone was producing recognisable pictures.  They began by using crayons to share specific emotions (anger, joy etc) and that opened up discussions around what impacts on their lives.  As the session progressed they drew pictures of things remembered from their childhood finishing with self-portraits.

 From initial reluctance these would be artist are looking forward to further sessions and hopefully they will invite others to join in.  Friendships have been formed, experiences shared and mutual support is developing.
