Veterans’ Art Club in Glasgow Wins Further Council Funding08 Feb 2019
An art club founded by a tenant at Bellrock Close in Glasgow has won a further grant of £4590, building on a similar grant received last August. Ex-Fusilier Allen Clarke set up the group after discovering that making art was highly beneficial to his own mental health.
The grant from Glasgow City Council’s Area Partnerships fund will provide materials for the class which is open both to residents of Bellrock Close and veterans in the wider community. A wide range of media are used including paint, clay, scratch kits and pyrography, with plans for photography as well. The class takes place every Wednesday from 2.30pm until 9pm on a drop in basis.
