Accessible Art for Disabled People in Beeston and Surrounding Areas
Had to give up work due to ill health or disability?
Interested in art?
If you have answered ‘yes’ to the questions above, then this group could be for you. We are an accessible art group for disabled people who have had to give up work. We’re based in Beeston, Nottingham but, with easy access by tram or bus, we invite people from in and around the Nottingham area. We meet on Wednesday afternoons during school term time from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm at the Oasis Centre on Union Street. Facilities include level access and disabled toilets. The group provides professional art tuition, group art sessions and social events. Fees are set at an affordable £20 per half term which also covers many art materials and resources. No prior experience is necessary.
New members are most welcome.
There are opportunities to learn about and experience working with a range of media, as well as time to explore and develop your own particular areas of interest. Group members have access to a range of materials and are also encouraged to begin to develop their own resources in their areas of interest. In this way, we are able to keep costs down.
At the end of each session, there is an opportunity to view and discuss the work produced during the session. Members enjoy this activity for the support and positivity it generates. We also aim to display our work at venues in and around Nottingham, a few times a year.
