The Still Lively morning group continues to go from strength to strength with around 20 people attending on a regular basis. As people grow in confidence they are continuing to develop work which is very diverse and surprising. As the weeks go on we are spending more time in the Galleries and the work is almost completely self directed.
We begin most sessions with an opportunity to look at the concertina drawing books which are evolving and are certainly a valuable way of capturing each persons creative journey.
At lunchtime the invitation to drop in and draw in the gallery has been met with approval from visitors. It is wonderful to see Wolverhampton Art Gallery filled with visitors aged 55+ feeling a confident sense of ownership of this great public space.
Our new afternoon group is also proving to be extremely popular. The emphasis is very firmly on drawing as making marks with meaning.
