Peacock Visual Arts is delighted to present Drawing in Response.
Drawing in Response is the result of the Bethany Arts Project, led by Bethany Christian Trust, in partnership with Gray’s School of Art and Peacock Visual Arts.
Bethany Arts Project is an ambitious new art project working with local homeless and vulnerable people to help them build confidence and learn new skills by participating in a series of printmaking and photography workshops.
Facilitated by Bethany’s Arts Coordinator, Caitlyn Main, with the help of Gray’s School of Art students Aiden Milligan and David Brown, participants worked with Peacock’s printmakers to create exciting new work of their own.
The aim of the Bethany Arts Project is to enable homeless and vulnerable people to work with artists in a way that harnesses their experience, enthusiasm, and creativity, as well as increase their own self-esteem.
Bethany Arts Project seeks to challenge perceptions of homelessness, social exclusion and encourage more mutual respect and understanding across the city.
