The Art for All Programme at Watts Gallery has offered the members of Street Level Art Group a place of focus and stability at time when everything else in their lives often feels in a state of flux. The workshops Watts Gallery have provided over the last 7 years have have allowed members to discover their passion and engage with the fantastic collection at Watts Gallery. The gallery has become a place of sanctuary and peace. We have participated in pottery, sculpture, carving, painting and drawing workshops to name but a few.

Thanks to the great skills and communication of the Watts team of artists our own skill levels have been vastly improved leading to members selling their work. Some members have even pursued further education courses or been able to find meaningful employment as a result of the skills they have learned. Most of all, the Art for All programme has helped members to discover their own self worth - a aspect of G F Watts vision for 'Art for All.'

Please give all you can to The Big Give this week - every penny you give really will make a huge difference to the lives of local community members and enable this groundbreaking work.
