COMMUNITY  ART  FOR  ALL !

Extensive practice
I have considerable experience in Community Arts working with a broad spectrum of community groups including adults, senior citizens, youth, children, people with intellectual and physical disability, prisoners and using a wide range of art medium.

Areas of specialisation  
I have an wide range of art and craft skills and techniques including  painting, batik, mosaic, murals, collage, clay, textile art, papier maché, model-making, artist book- making and more. Project are designed and tailor-made for each Community Group.

What can I do for you and your group?
If you have a wall – indoors or out – crying out for attention, we can make a mural, perhaps with mosaic elements, to a theme chosen by you.
Maybe your group would prefer to learn other new skills and develop their creativity through batik, mosaic, clay, painting ? I will design your project to your requirements.

The project can be worked on at your pace and I can be flexible in this – meeting once a week, once a month or an intense workshop over a period of days or weeks.
