G F and Mary Watts passionately believed that making and experiencing arts and culture transformed quality of life for individuals and communities. There are areas of deprivation right on our doorstep. Working with community groups, charities and prisons, we offer people with significant challenges in their lives the opportunity to explore the art and ideas of G F and Mary Watts, to create their own art with professional artists, and to exhibit and sell their work in an annual exhibition. In this way, we provide skills, qualifications and income to people facing significant barriers to education and employment. Just as Mary Watts opened the doors of her studio and welcomed local people in to learn new creative skills, so we continue to offer everyone the opportunity to take part in the arts.
'Coming to Watts Gallery makes me happy and cheerful. I look forward to coming. I like coming here I do. Drawing and designing is important because you make your own things that you like to do. I learn to make with clay, making pictures and exhibiting and selling my artwork.' - Denis from the halow project
