Art with Wimbledon Library

Partner: Art with Wimbledon Library
Partner type: Community Group
Project category: Volunteering

Pupils from King's devise an art activity every week to keep a group of local residents interested and entertained. Pupils liaise with the library staff to obtain materials and resources and then run the class. A little artistic skill is helpful, but the task is really to get a programme of good activities arranged and running, and then enjoy the conversation (and maybe chocolate biscuits!) as the customers paint and draw.

Aims of the project

The aims are two-fold - it teaches the elderly in the community art skills and helps them to engage with others regularly and it also helps our pupils to hone their artistic ability and to learn teaching skills.
