Points of Interest: Art on the Move

Image

Points of Interest: Art on the Move is an Arts and Health Walks project that for the past three months has met on a weekly basis to go out walking and produce some wonderful artworks.

With an emphasis on walking being good for mental health as well as physical health we visited Bradgate Park, Coventry Transport Museum, Hollycroft Park and Coalville’s Art Trail; along with the help of artist Julia Smith participants have produced artworks depicting the four walks whilst exploring different methods of art by using paint, pastels and print.

We are now exhibiting the group’s fabulous work in the Atkins Building’s reception area from June 7th until July 12th, we invite you to visit and enjoy the wonderful work made.

For more information on how to get to the Atkins Building please go to http://www.atkinsbuilding.co.uk/contact/

Check in again next week for photos, quotes and even an interview with artist Julia Smith as we celebrate Points of Interest and the unveiling of some lovely art!
