The last block of workshops might be over, but there are still a few of our amazing volunteers we would like to thank! This week, meet Amy Hinson, who was a great addition to our Create team!
“Project Ability is a wonderful organization, I have loved volunteering at the Saturday Create Visual Arts Classes! Working with the artists each week, I have learnt so much about my practice and have seen first hand the importance of art. It is such an optimistic environment, full of creative energy and always a lot of fun. The classes are often an adventure; we are always exploring different mediums together making it a truly collaborative process. The young makers are so open and decisive in their approach; it is so rewarding to see the enjoyment they get from their work. It has inspired me so much, each week gaining the trust of the artists, hearing their stories, and sharing in their work. I come away each week with a renewed enthusiasm for my own making, for art and life!
I graduated from the Glasgow School of Art Fine Art Photography department last summer and have continued explore to ideas I established in my final year of study. I am interested in the intimate interactions that are made between individuals, with society and place. I often look to make a memorial to these acts. Project Ability has reinforced my interest in human interactions the way we as artists have come together and the impact of this collaboration on our lives.”
Many thanks Amy! We are now recruiting new volunteers for the next block of workshops. Please click here for more information.
