A series of works inspired by the human body and created by Suffolk artists with learning disabilities are set to be exhibited.
Adults with learning disabilities from Lowestoft will have their works displayed at the exhibition which launches at La Tour Cycle Café in Ipswich tomorrow (Wednesday, July 11).
The free arts exhibition, featuring work inspired by the human body, is the culmination of a 15-week course that offered adults with learning disabilities in Ipswich, Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds the chance to enjoy exploring different art forms, led by professional artists. During the past few months, students of Suffolk Artlink’s JumpstART arts course have been inspired by the the human body, with the exhibition featuring work that includes drawing and painting, textiles and sculpture.
The exhibition launches at the café on Wednesday, July, 11 from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, to which everyone is welcome.
Fran Speight, project development officer for Suffolk Artlink said: “We’ve had a fantastic time exploring the human body this term. With the support of a wide variety of professional artists, our students have made some beautiful pieces - they are really looking forward to sharing them with you.”
Lucy, a JumpstART student in Lowestoft, added: “I love the exhibitions. It’s hard work putting them on but I like people seeing my work.”
