We have had a wonderful week at Access Arts, opening the doors at our new studio for Community Sharing Week. Artists, families and members of the Yeronga community were invited to step into our colourful and purpose-built professional arts studio to take part in a range of Visual Arts workshops and activities.
The event was a great opportunity for family, friends and other artists in the community to observe how participants approach their weekly practice and participate in Access Arts workshop activities.
“We wanted to make the Yeronga community feel welcome. We hope to make people aware of this incredible resource that is available for developing artists with disability in Yeronga,” Tim Brown, Access Arts Arts Manager said.
“I watched in awe and excitement as the artists worked, seeing how artworks are dreamed up and turned into reality is very rare.”
Artists of all abilities were in attendance creating a range of works including; collages, drawings, paintings, mosaics and colourfully decorated flower pots.
“Most of the participants have very strong ideas about what they would like to create, we are here to support their vision and facilitate building new skills and supporting professional goals,“ Jasmin Colman, Access Arts Visual Arts Coordinator said.
