Royal Cornhill Hospital
Word gets around about Artroom, especially when we get to show off the wonderful and varied work created across our projects – lots of people want to get involved. We’d love to be able to fill every request that we receive, but time, logistics and funding always limit what we can deliver. We do try and stretch things as much as we can and these colourful creations came about from one of those requests.
We met with an Occupational Therapist at Royal Cornhill Hospital, who had four patients in separate wards who were really interested in art. Due to various reasons, they couldn’t attend any current Artroom sessions at RCH, so we made up some art packs for them with instructions so that any staff could help each person. They tried clay, collage, printmaking, drawing and painting. We’re delighted with the results!

We want to make sure that in Artroom, nobody misses out on the opportunity to participate, no matter their personal circumstances. Often, our Artroom artists are challenged with finding creative solutions around barriers to participation. Anna and Laura, our creative practitioners at RACH were stretching their creativity (and their legs) when coming up with ways to engage everyone in Artroom. They set up a wheelchair painting session in a special location with help from the Play Staff. We’re not sure who had the most fun – the artists or the participants – we’ll let you decide.
