Often as we grow-up the urge to make art goes away. Even for children the opportunities can be limited. So, huge thanks to Action for Children for providing art workshop sessions for their children and staff. And to An Lanntair for their support: providing a space and for this opportunity to exhibit some of the work made.
These acrylic paintings on canvas by children and staff are a small selection made during a series of workshops last autumn.

We were delighted to work with Sandra on this project. She supported, gave advice and cared for everyone who attended. The children and young people really benefited from creating art works and experimenting with different media. It was clear too, that the staff had strong supportive relationships with the young people they work with.
We have had a long-standing positive partnership with An Lanntair that we hope will continue for years to come. Art is such a great way of letting children and young people express themselves and feel the better for it.
