Station Gallery has been working with Abilities Centres to provide hands on art making
This summer Station Gallery welcomed the campers from the Abilities Centre for an interactive tour and an opportunity for hands art making. The exhibition was filled with whimsical and collaborative activities and allowed campers to leave their mark. Following the tour campers worked with one of our talented artist instructors and built 3D clay comic scenes, based on the artwork from the exhibition.
