A free arts exhibition, featuring work created by local artists with learning disabilities, will start next week.

Arts charity, Suffolk Artlink, are inviting people to attend the exhibition at the Coconut Loft from Thursday, June 21 to Friday, June 29.

The exhibition is the culmination of Suffolk Artlink's arts training course, JumpstART, which offers adults with learning disabilities the chance to enjoy exploring different art forms.

During the past few months, students have been exploring the human body through art. The exhibition features a selection of the students' work, including drawing and painting, textiles and sculpture.

A private view will be held at The Coconut Loft, in Waterloo Road, next Thursday from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. 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 are really looking forward to sharing them with you.'
