R3 ETE displays a colourful art exhibition
On Friday 22 April, the R3 ETE service in Redbridge launched an art exhibition, showcasing some of the work created by the learners of their 7 week drawing class.
Each week, learners used different textures and materials to develop different techniques, exploring and pushing their artistic skills. Using tools from chalks and charcoals to paint and pencils, the learners created several finished pieces that were displayed in the colourful exhibition.
The class was taught by Yvonne Lodemore from WEA, founded in 1903, the Workers’ Educational Association is a charity and the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education.
Serena*, one of the learners, said that ‘it was really interesting for me to open my mind and be creative. I learned more and more each week – every week we changed mediums to work with different lights and tools, like pencil. Everybody’s work looks amazing.’ Patrick*, another learner, added: ‘the sessions were really fun. It’s nice to take your mind off things and relax!’
The work will be on display in R3 ETE for several weeks.
*Service users names have been changed.
