Meet the volunteers: Sarah Vincent



Today marks the start of National Volunteers Week, and we take this opportunity to say once again a BIG thank you to all our volunteers, past and present! It is also a perfect opportunity to introduce you to one of our volunteers: Sarah Vincent.

 Sarah graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2000 in painting and went on to study Art therapy at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. She currently teaches art to adults with disabilities at Cardonald College and has been a member of the Independent Studios for about 3 years, where she shares a space with her partner Sandy.

Sarah volunteered with us to deliver a series of 4 full day workshops.  The workshops produced a body of work which will be made into a fundraising calendar. Participants in her workshops produced fantastic images around the theme of 2012 Olympics.

Sarah’s recent personal work has been a series of small oil paintings inspired by Google Streetview's of urban areas of Glasgow. She is also interested in making some work about silence and recently made a full body cast in tissue paper!

The result of her workshops, the Project Ability 2012 calendar, will be available to buy in our shop and online in the last few months of 2011. Keep an eye out for it, the artworks are beautiful!
