Advent Calendar Day 20

It’s day 20 of our Advent Calendar and we will be helping a charity that is new to us, Conquest Art. We will be donating £100 to the Halesworth group to help them continue the good work they do. They meet at the United Reform Church in Halesworth every Wednesday.

 

From their website – We aim to help people who live with a disability or long-term illness by providing Conquest Art groups around the country and encouraging many more people to come and join us.  Our group members find fulfilment through joining in, whatever their level of ability and disability, and experience a sense of achievement and satisfaction from exhibiting their artwork.

Everyone is encouraged to create from their imagination, develop their own style and work at their own pace in a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere,   This is important, as a person’s disability can sometimes affect their level of creativity but many who initially doubt their abilities are surprised at the results they achieve.

Using our simple methods, newcomers can soon get that first line or image on the page.  From there they can develop their skills and try new ideas with help from the team volunteers.  For members with particular needs we can provide specialist equipment such as head pointers, scented pens for the visually impaired or specially adjusted easels.
