Budding artists brighten up library with exhibition
Essex Cares Ltd. (ECL) showcased the talents of adults with learning disabilities this month (February) by exhibiting their wide range of original paintings at Colchester Library.
All artwork has been created by ECL's customers, based at their Work Based Training enterprise, Redwood Creative Design.
Customers at Redwood Creative Design were provided with this opportunity to gain valuable work based experience - producing and their artwork as well as engaging with members of the public at the library.
Keir Lynch, Chief Executive, ECL
We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the work of some of our customers at Colchester Library. It's great to be able to recognise our customers' talents and help them gain work based training experience. What is truly special is that you can see how much they love doing it.
Members of the public enjoyed a hot drink whilst they browsed the paintings, offered by ECL's Book Rest Café Work Based Training enterprise.
All money raised from the sale of the artwork has been invested back into the enterprise to help support the needs of adults with learning disabilities in Colchester.
Some products such as these paintings are made by our customers with learning disabilities and can be purchased on our online shop.
