This colourful and diverse collection of art work was created by people who use The Connection at St Martin’s art room.
The art room is an informal drop-in group available to people on weekday mornings. Some attend one session, others stay for much longer. The group gives people the space and freedom to explore their creativity using a variety of materials from paint to clay. People can work on their own projects, or receive support and ideas from volunteers in the art room.
As well as being therapeutic, art is a positive distraction away from the worries and stress of being homeless. Creating art also improves confidence and helps people discover strengths and uncover hidden talents.
