Meet the Volunteers: Anne Guillemin

 

 

Anne Guillemin applied to volunteer with us after an extensive career spanning 32 years, working for 10 years at the Visual Arts Studio and a further 22 years as an art teacher in a variety of schools throughout Glasgow. Recently retired, Anne applied to volunteer with our ‘Create’ programme, here’s what she said about her experience…

"Working as a volunteer for Project Ability proved to be a very enlightening experience for me. It provided a perfect opportunity to work alongside some very interesting and inspiring young individuals. It was a treat to be able to spend time with the older kids in particular and share in their enthusiasm towards their artwork.

The talented young staff and volunteers encourage a carefree yet focused atmosphere in a fantastic space where budding young artists get the rare opportunity to create exactly what they want to create in a safe supported environment.

 


It was a privilege to be a part of their team and is one which I will treasure and can heartily recommend. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with these lovely kids. They taught me more than I gave to them. Life lessons."
-Anne Guillemin
