We are absolutely delighted to be able to show a range of arts works painted by Art Group members of Keighley Healthy Living at Cliffe Castle Museum.
Before the pandemic began, there were 4 classes of all abilities who met to create art in a fun and chatty atmosphere under the guidance of the tutor, Victoria Alderson.
During Lockdown the Classes went on-line and the response has been overwhelmingly positive, strengthening friendships and bonds despite the obvious barriers.
The groups have still been painting weekly by means of YouTube videos (made by Victoria) meeting virtually on Zoom and even sharing and celebrating their work on WhatsApp.
Inspired by our new display on Spiders in the Natural Sciences Gallery at Cliffe Castle, they have created an interesting range of paintings and drawings based on the theme.
