Forest, Arylic and mixed media on canvas, 100cm x 100cm (NFS)
The artwork above is a collaborative painting, made by participants on the HEADSTART Arts on Prescription programme before lockdown started. Workshops such as these provide opportunities for young people to build skills, confidence and friendships together, using the arts and creativity as a catalyst. In recent times art groups such as HEADSTART have had to adapt to new virtual and socially distanced formats to carry on meeting.
