Throughout 2012 Studio 3 continues to grow with older members moving onto new opportunities and welcoming in new participants at the same time.
As Studio 3 has been at the heart of Artlink for a number of years, the time has come to look at making the group more independent. With this in mind, members have now formed a sub-committee and will be leading on small funding bids to compliment and shape their current artistic programme. It is the intention that the group, over time, may become fully independent of Artlink.
Members have continued to develop their work over the year. During this time Studio 3 have taken part in a printing workshop at Leeds College of Art, begun a new Open Door project exploring the visual arts and animation and played a key role in the Open Door exhibition supporting the lead artists. There are also many individual successes, including one member leading a photography workshop at Northern Ballet.
The group will also be taking part in a project at Leeds Art Gallery exploring the Nike Savvas exhibition in early 2013.
Studio 3 is our only weekly on-going arts workshop. It takes place on Wednesdays from 1.30pm – 4pm and is open to adult mental health service users. We have a professional artist, Jill Johnson, attending on a fortnightly basis to support participants. Fees apply for the workshop ranging from £2 – £4, please contact Artlink for further details and to arrange a visit. All artistic abilities are very welcome.
