New art workshop for homeless

May 21 2009
Capital A aims to make London galleries more accessible with tours and workshops A new organisation has launched in London to join the likes of SMart and Crisis Skylight. Capital A is made up of four volunteer workers and is developing a programme of art workshops in London's public museums and galleries. Their aim is to make the galleries more accessible to everyone in London. The programme offers tours, as well as practical art workshops, throughout the year at museums and galleries (plus one woodworking workshop) led by tutors, curators and artists who are experts in their fields. Jennifer Burnham from Capital A told The Pavement that they have "top quality workshops open to everyone, beginners and experts, newcomers and old-timers alike - no experience is necessary and all materials are provided". The workshops are free, including materials, refreshments and lunch during all-day sessions, but you will have to arrange your own transport. Workshops will take place at the Imperial War Museum, Tate Britain, the National Gallery, Tate Modern, the National Portrait Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal Academy, Wallace Collection, Serpentine Gallery.
