Drawing & Painting

As a fully qualified teacher, Sophie has had the priviledge of running drawing and painting workshops for adults with mild/moderate learning difficulties/disabilities since 2001.

These workshops have been profoundly rewarding. She has had glimpses into alternative interpretations of the world; fascinating discussions prompted by studying the work of celebrated artists; witnessed total immersion in the making of art work and observed unlimited, unconstrained creativity.

The images show examples of participants’ work on projects that include Rhythm of Life, Hommage to Monet, Autumn Trees and Masks that I have initiated and led in the London Borough of Croydon, and exhibited in Space C, at the Croydon Clocktower and Horniman Museum, London.CALAT Calendar 091 - 04
