About the Event
The title Proud 2 Create represents a group of Deaf, Autistic and Neurodivergent artists supported by Sandra at the Art4All Studio, in Acol near Birchington. The Studio strives to enable the artists to create as independently as possible, tapping into their abilities and guiding them to make art that is both meaningful and purposeful.
Sandra is passionate about art and is witness to the enhancement in the wellbeing of these artists, whilst generating awareness and respect for their work.
The artwork exhibited has been produced in a variety of mark making methods, utilising a number of very different techniques. Each artist is given the opportunity to try and experiment in fun and attainable processes, that they may, or may not use as a part of their practice.
Whilst the finished product is clearly important, it is rather the process and application that is as relevant. Some artworks are planned, some are not. Each artist is guided to give them freedom to create art in their own way giving them a voice that is not normally heard.
