The Unique Art Awards is a national competition for young disabled artists aged 7- 21 years
We are thrilled to share that one of our Lifeworks College students, Chloe, has won 1st prize at a NATIONAL Arts Award. The Unique Art Awards is a national competition for young disabled artists aged 7- 21 years funded by the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists – UK trust fund.
Chloe had a choice of 3 themes and chose – Sun, Sea and Sky. She created a stunning painting and won the Youth section Gold award for 2D art, and won a voucher for £125 to spend at an online art shop (already she has some great ideas on what she is going to treat herself to). The judges said they really liked her use of colour and her painting showed great depth. An amazing achievement for a very talented artist
Lifeworks Charity has created a nurturing environment where young people with learning disabilities can discover their unique talents and passions. Whether it’s painting, music or learning practical skills in woodwork, these young individuals are encouraged to explore their creative potential to the fullest.
Through our programs, young people with learning disabilities develop essential life skills, including communication, teamwork, and self-confidence. A number of arts qualifications are offered too – Arts Award at Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver and arts qualifications in the Ascentis Framework. These skills empower them to become more independent and engaged members of their communities. Lifeworks extends these activities to their Saturday youth clubs and holiday programmes where art based activities play a vital part.
