Description

Artbox Frome works with artists with learning disabilities to create exhibit and sell their art.

We are looking for creative individuals to help out at our studio sessions on a Saturday.

This will involve supporting our artists to explore different mediums and artistic techniques. Our studio sessions are a fun, relaxed and social environment where our artists can develop their own individual style.

We welcome volunteers who are able to provide positive support and guidance to people with learning disabilities. Previous experience supporting people with learning disabilities is not required, just an understanding of the barriers they may face and an enthusiasm to help change this.
