We met Sarah outside the Carousel office, with her luggage in tow, ready and packed for her respite care in Rottingdean later that day. This was our first visit to Same Sky studios, who have kindly allowed us to share the studio space over the next 6 weeks.
Will had Virtual Reality training with Carousel today, or else he would of loved to of been here. Sarah was a little apprehensive on arrival , just like the first day at school.
After a quick tour, a chat and some tea, the nerves turned to excitement and the paint began to flow. Sarah had never used acrylic paints before or painted onto canvas but it immediately became apparent that these materials naturally suited or rather allowed Sarah’s expressive style to come out. She used sponges, sticks, brushes and her fingers, adding paint, removing paint , dappling and splashing ; With a few pointers there was no stopping her.
A great start and confidence building experience.
