Art at the Baseline Centre

Self Portraits and Conversation

Its quite challenging being asked to draw yourself, so artist, Malca Schotten, created some templates with different body shapes, to get the group at Future Projects started.

The group are regulars at the Baseline Centre, in the Marlpit area of Norwich, which is run by Future Projects, a charity providing support to communities.

The group all know each other and the art exercise stimulated talk of life stories and reminiscence.

The artwork was also the subject of much laughter and gentle teasing; a very enjoyable couple of hours.
