About this Event

Brave Art is a Suffolk Artlink project for adults with learning disabilities. Students have the chance to explore a variety of art forms whilst developing creative and life skills.
Students worked alongside professional artists to explore the theme of animals and their habitats. Using pencils, charcoal, paint and clay, they studied the taxidermy animals and artwork in our current exhibition Animals in the Art Gallery, explored Christchurch Park and sketched the trees and wildlife around Christchurch Mansion.
Brave Art Students: Tanya Barton, Geoff Elmer, Stephen Emery, Nicola Fayers, Steven Frost, Jenny Gardiner, Terry Gilbert, Mark Keir, Dashiel Kemal, Billy Swallow and William Thornton.
Artists: Claudia Boese, Alice-Andrea Ewing and Emma Withers.
This display is suitable for all ages.
