I have been officially voted as the new Chairman of Ulverston Society of Artists. A position I will hopefully use to further improve the society's public awareness especially to a younger audience. I am probably one of the youngest members and I hope whilst working at Barrow 6th Form College I can promote the society to the students.
It would be great for students to attend demonstrations by artists from away, give them the opportunity to share ideas, tips and hints on working on art pieces and hopefully give them confidence to show their work in exhibitions.
I believe the experimentation that my colleague and I encourage the students to do in their work would bring a new lease to the current work artists in the society and give the exhibitions a further diverse range of media, subject matter and quality.
