Last week ELEVATE hosted their first arts workshop led by Venessa Scott. Venessa took the group through a creative process that she often uses in her own work which explores paint, colour, texture and pattern.
“The workshop was really special as it was the first time in so long that we’d been in a room with other people making art, being creative, sharing ideas and encouraging words and above all laughing and having fun! Some of the group members moved to the UK just before or as the pandemic hit and so the workshop was a great opportunity to welcome them to the hall and to Stretford.” – Jessica, ELEVATE project manager.
There will be an exhibition at the Hall in July showcasing the art that is created in the workshops alongside as Venessa’s latest artwork and other artists.
