The tutors are really friendly and support you when you need help.
Elmwood College recently hosted a ‘Big Draw’ day, designed to widen the creative opportunities for students with learning difficulties. They provided an opportunity for the students to work together and inspire one another to create a dynamic and energising environment for personal development.
The students first covered an entire classroom floor and walls with paper and then with support from tutors and support workers, decorated the blank canvas with paint, felt pens and mixed media artwork.
Student Dean McSporran said, “I had a great time! It was nice to our class decorated with art. It was really bright and colourful, I’ve never seen anything like it before!”
Student Support Assistant, Suzi Gasparini, said, “The aim was to facilitate the exploration of students creative potential. Art provides our students with the opportunity to relate imaginatively to their environment and day-to-day activities. Some of our students find it difficult to socially interacting. Our goal is to have them use art as a form of expression, to connect with their peers and interact with people around them.”
