Two multi media pieces of art work by WEA 101 Branch students’ work are currently on display at Brocks Hill Country Park and Visitor Centre, Oadby.
Libby Gluyas, Information Officer, confirms that she was delighted to put them on display.
She explains, Rupert Simms, course leader for ‘Exploring the natural world’ has brought in the two pieces of work produced by his students as part of the course (organised for service users with our community partners Deacon & Hardy and South Leicestershire Community Opportunities). The pieces are multi media of paint, pastel and collage and depict parts of our Country Park: the Willow Arch and the birches in Winter Wood.’
‘Through the discussion I had with Rupert when he dropped them off it is clear that the group has thoroughly enjoyed the time they have spent at Brocks Hill and the images demonstrate very clearly the impact it has made through the detail in colour, texture and form.’
Libby continues, ‘Brocks Hill Country Park and Centre prides itself on being accessible and welcoming to all. We work hard at managing our Country Park to enhance biodiversity and making a place for all. the inclusion of Brocks Hill as part of the ‘Exploring the natural world’ course helps to endorse the work that we carry out and we look forward to working with the Workers’ Educational Association in the future.’
