Artwork by you 2020

At the beginning of this strange and tricky year, one of the first things to close were the groups which many of us belonged to, taught or were reliant on.

We ate, slept, saw the inside of our homes a lot, saw our families if it was possible, and hopefully found a route through this bizarre time which was bearable!!

And something lovely happened.

Not only did a discipline of drawing begin after years of feeling guilty spending time on my own work, but people drew too.

And they chatted to each other, and started a couple of whatsapp groups. And then a zoom.

And then another charity asked to do a similar art group for a couple of weeks on zoom . Along with art materials which were delivered to them through BAVS.

And suddenly, they had all done this………

These artworks are a small fraction of their achievements. We drew birds, and still life, toys and faces, doors and beaches, skies and animals.. built sculptures, made fairy gardens and inky rained the days away until we saw each other again..
