In February 2022 Somerset Art Works launched a brand new Online Art Group for Health and Wellbeing. Thirty people have joined to take part in twice monthly online classes with artist Sara Dudman – an opportunity to access some much needed creative time for themselves, in a way that suits them.
These first few sessions we’ve been focussing on having fun through expression and line, using different drawing techniques to create depth and texture, building confidence in mark making. Sara encourages us to use everything from ink and electrical tape to more familiar materials like charcoal, to build up images, adding layers of ‘frottage’ and texture from rubbings.
“I am loving leading the practical demonstrations and building this fab online creative community. Since the beginning of Covid, I think we’ve all realised just how important it is to reach out to each other and give and receive support in whatever ways we can. We are so fortunate to have virtual and digital ways of staying connected through art!” Sara Dudman
