See Me - Portrait Painting
Updated: Jun 29, 2022
Portraits with David Bannister
This workshop was run by local artist David Bannister, in Llanfair Caereinion, on portrait painting in an abstract style. This was great fun and the results were interesting. Everyone produced at least one finished piece. We hope to have another workshop with him in the future!
We titled the project 'See Me'
‘See Me’ is about how disabled people are whole people just like everybody else, we are more than our impairments. We all fulfil different roles like any other human being, we have skills and abilities, and are not as represented in the media negatively as either fakers and scroungers or as burdens on society. The group have responded to these ideas in different ways.
