Expressive Paint News...
Updated: May 20, 2019
Thanks for signing up to my Expressive Paint News.
Through this blog I hope to keep you informed of developments in my community arts practice .
Most recently , this spring I worked in Colyton memory cafe , in east devon.
As you may know I have been providing paint sessions for memory cafe`s for over 2 years across the South West . I have visited venues across both devon and Cornwall , enabling groups to connect with their creativity .It has been really life affirming meeting you all and hearing your stories too.
As you may be aware I started this work offering interactive puppet shows for care home residents .
But it was an opportunity at `Reflections` day centre in Redruth at the end of 2016 that gave me the time to develop the successful expressive paint workshops that I have been developing in memory cafes ever since.
Also I am about to set up an online funding initiative to broaden the possibilities for this essiential creative work across communities in the South West. I will keep you informed of developments .
Upcoming exhibition of my own painting with fellow artist Peter Brown 14th - 28th June at ;
In April I ran a session in Perranwell Memory Cafe`.Both great groups of participants who enjoyed a colourful ,Expressive paint filled afternoon of activity!
In the meantime , if you would like to hear more about what I can offer , or would like make a booking for a session then please contact me .
I will keep you informed about upcoming events and session
