Our new project Level Up is well underway! Thanks to support from Arts Council England and Chalk Cliff Trust, we are supporting Sarah Watson’s artistic development through a series of mentoring opportunities.
Sarah will be mentored in Photography, Print-Making, Digital Illustration, and Painting. She is going to create new work to share with ArtStudio01 in Shrewsbury, which is an Artist collective led by Tanya-Raabe Webber.
Following her mentoring Sarah, supported by Producer Clare Sheppeard, will set up the Figment Arts Studio, based in Brighton. If you are interested in getting involved get in touch.
