Here are some photos from our Experimental Drawing workshop this week.
We had fun making huge projected drawings using finely cut fruit, sensory drawing in pairs and even drew from the sound and movements of a theremin being played!

Watts Chapel was Mary Watts's masterpiece, and since 2014 @wattsgalleryhas been charged with the responsibility of looking after this Grade I listed #ArtsandCrafts gem. The core running costs of maintaining Watts Chapel are around £30,000 per year.
Since its inception in 1895, #WattsChapel has been at the heart of the local community. Mary Watts ran terracotta classes for local villagers, helping them to learn new skills, and many of these locals contributed to the design of the building in one of the first community art projects, which the Wattses later gifted to the Parish Council. This ethos still stands strong today, with the Chapel acting as a vibrant part of the local community.
Any donations assist with repairing, maintaining, conserving and caring for this unique piece of Arts & Crafts heritage, if you would like to donate then please follow the link in our bio.

The @wattsgallery Collection includes over 7,000 works of #art including #sculptures, #portraits, landscape #paintings,# photographs and #ceramics and over 800 works on paper. Significant works include Paolo and Francesca (c. 1872-74), The Sower of the Systems (c. 1902) and the original gesso model for the monumental sculpture Physical Energy (1884-1904). The Collection also includes an extensive #archive. Individual #artworks are often sent out on loan to other institutions and are used to inform our temporary exhibitions, providing insight into G F and Mary Watts and their impact on the 19th century. Each year it costs Watts Gallery Trust a minimum of £50,000 to secure, conserve and care for the Collection, but often these costs are much higher. By making a donation towards the care of our Collection you will be ensuring that these important works of art are preserved for generations to come.
As an independent charitable trust that receives no regular government funding, every donation is invaluable. If you would like to donate then please click on the link in our bio. •£25 could help pay for acid-free paper for storing important artworks

At the heart of everything we do @wattsgallery is the ethos that art should be for everyone. The #ArtForAll learning programme embodies this idea by reaching out to people from all walks of life: schools, children, young people, families and adult learners and to some of the most isolated and disadvantaged people in our society.
Our outreach project, The Big Issues, works with partner organisations to make a difference in the lives of those most in need in our community. Under the guidance of professional artists, participants take part in tailored art workshops, producing creative work in a welcoming and therapeutic environment. These are displayed and sold as part of the annual The Big Issues exhibition. We work with prisoners and young offenders, the homeless, young people not in education, employment or training, young people on the At Risk Register, those who have suffered alcohol or substance abuse and people with poor mental health. Education and learning at the Artists' Village is arguably the most important strand of all the work that we do here.
By supporting the Art for All programme you can help to instill a creative passion in a person, which can transform their life. If you would like to donate then please click on the link in our bio.
