Into Art at our new creative studio!
In February we opened up our new Justlife Creative Studio in Brighton’s Open Market. The studio is for anyone that has experienced homelessness to create art and explore creativity. We launched with a five week ‘Into Art’ course where each week we explored the techniques of a different artist and then experimented with these techniques to create a wonderful collection of work (see below!).
We had a great response to this first series of workshops and partner agencies are now beginning to refer artists too. We celebrated our work with a launch event on 17th March where the artists exhibited their work and members of the public could visit the space, check out photos of the event here.
What’s Next For The Studio
