Donate now - Harriet’s story

 

Project Ability uses the funds we raise to keep the cost of our programming as low as possible so it is accessible to all and of the highest quality; providing expert tuition and professional materials. One of our young artists, Harriet Campbell, wanted to share her story and show how Project Ability has had an impact on her life.

"I have attended Project Ability for 4 years now and I love it. I look forward to my class each week and enjoy the positive atmosphere in the studio. I am completely relaxed and able to focus on what I enjoy doing because the environment and staff are fabulous. I am supported and guided when I need help but mainly encouraged and praised about my work – this makes me feel amazing!!!

Having my work displayed in the gallery was the best feeling ever… it gave lots of people the chance to see exactly why Project Ability means so much to me and the many others who are lucky enough to attend.  I loved reading all the comments that visitors to the exhibition made – it was wonderful.
Project Ability is a place I feel safe and accepted for who I am.  I love me weekly classes."

Harriet’s first solo exhibition Total Drama Island was shown in our gallery from the 20 – 30 May 2015, and received fantastic feedback: "We loved it. Fresh, original, vibrant colours. Make them into cards please!" , "Harriet, this is amazing work, so full of romance and humour, emotion and action… And those colours!"

Your donation will help us to continue to provide a first rate arts service to Harriet and the 300 people with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions and mental ill health who access the programme each week. Aged from 5 years to 80 plus the artists benefit from accessing our superb studios in the centre of Glasgow, taking part in a challenging, innovative, inclusive workshop programme that provides opportunities for people to learn, develop and exhibit their art work contributing to the vibrancy of Glasgow’s artist community.
 

Thank you!
