We would like to take this time to say a huge thank you to all our dedicated volunteers! It is always so wonderful to see the connections, ideas and artworks that are formed during the blocks of workshops.
We recently asked a few of our volunteers to share their experience with us. Here are a few words from the wonderful Johnny Kirkwood:
Since volunteering at Project Ability, my older brother and I have been working collaboratively, mostly making a lot of drawings, prints and paintings. I had started a creative residency in partnership with GSA and Garnetbank Primary School, before lockdown sort of scuppered those plans. I also recently made a free series of lockdown lesson plans for families during the coronavirus epidemic as part of it. It’s all a bit strange right now.
I can’t thank everyone at Project Ability enough, especially Valerie and the Friday Aspire group. It was such an invaluable experience and one I’ll always cherish. It’s such a unique space in Glasgow and I really look back at my time there as being key to where I’m at now, it really helped me to refocus and get excited about making again during a period of uncertainty.”
Thank you so much for volunteering your time at Project Ability Johnny! We know the ‘Friday Aspire Legends’ really enjoyed having you in the studio with them!
