For the second part of our pilot project in Wells and as part of the social mentorship program with The Aster Foundation; HOW visited clients that live in a supported housing community called Keward House.
The supported living clients have access to a Summer House that we will be based in for our 5 week project.
We are making use of that Summer house by turning the place into a creative hub that displays art the clients make throughout this journey.
The clients that attended were encouraged to start thier creative journey by making visual art with the materials provided by HOW.
The materials were laid out and the clients began exploring ideas that we can grow by mark making and mixing media.
Starting with a blank canvas, we looked at the different ideas that we can grow and what ideas we can develop as the project unfolds.
Anything was possible and it is our purpose to help people access creativity whilst facilitating social engagement.
Some great art was made and it was a delight to see people unlocking thier creative licenses as they discovered what is possible when you incorporate creativty into everyday life.
We are passionate about humans living thier best possible lives whilst putting into practice the skills they learn along the way.
HOW focuses on getting the community to lead where they would like to take projects.
It was decided by the clients they would like to work on a mural and expand on a wall drawing of the Glastonbury Tor in our first session.
We are very much looking forward to seeing what happens next.
