Earlier this year Arts & Minds worked with Leeds Art Gallery, selecting a series of artworks from their collection. They met fortnightly with curators and the Art Doctors for support and inspiration, just as covid restrictions were relaxed. For many this was their first time back in the gallery for over a year, and a welcome introduction back into a creative space.
At each session a curator introduced artworks following the theme of nature. They were used as a stimulus for discussion, and the Art Doctors facilitated the sharing of ideas and techniques that could be used to respond to the artwork. Some participants brought along work they had created between sessions and used the group for feedback and advice.
This page celebrates the project and features some of the work they created, which is currently on display in Artspace.
