Two Project Ability tutors, Consuelo and Celine, have been going along to The Happy Club in Easterhouse for the past couple of weeks. The Happy Club is an ongoing evening club for young people with autism and their parents and these were the start of a six week series of workshops with the two tutors.
Consuelo has been working with the group for quite some time already, but for Celine it was the first time she had been along.
‘The art workshop is just one of the activities available to the young people. There’s some stiff competition from the computers but there are quite a few budding young artists who have joined us and been very focused in making some wonderful artwork.
The first couple of weeks we have been experimenting with printmaking and we plan to do some work with clay and textiles for the rest of the sessions. As you can see from the photographs, there has been an explosion of colour and creativity so far!
