Birds at the Lodge Arboretum Park Derby

I’m really enjoying doing Volunteer work helping with the ‘All being Well Art Group’ on the Arboretum Park in Derby. I have helped students develop Poster ideas to Reduce the Stigma of Mental Health Problems, we have made paper birds, we’ve attended Exhibitions such as the QUAD in Derby and The Lake side Gallery in Nottingham and this week we are hoping to have a picnic and draw outside again this time on A3 sheets of Paper, so we can be more expressive.

My Dad has made a lovely job of making me 6x wooden drawing boards for us to use.

Wow! The hot weather has certainly brought the Butterflies out, but I must say where we live there are 3 Large Buddleias and yes I have taken part in the Great Butterfly Count, to take part go to http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/. I have managed to take some lovely photos of a few too! :)

‘Art at The HeART’ Erewash

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

As mentioned before I have been lucky this year to have the opportunity to be part of the ”Art at The HeART’ Erewash. I attended 5 free workshops and learned about working with people with Dementia and had the great time shadowing an Artist at  Midway Hospital Ilkeston. I had the chance to run a ‘Drawing for Wellbeing Workshop! Please see Photos…
