Shallal Studios and Project Ability join forces to forge a real creative community during lockdown
What is Picture Post?
Picture Post is a new Shallal Studios project in partnership with Project Ability in Glasgow; a fun, creative way to connect with artists who are isolated during lockdown via post and video. We’ll be publishing regular art activity packs and videos here as well as sending out postal art activity packs, so that people who don’t have the internet can be just as involved as everyone else.
The project will build a creative community where artists can share the work they have made in response to the activity pack and see other peoples’ artwork. The artwork will be posted here and via a printed catalogue of peoples’ artwork which we'll send out to the artists half way through the project and at the end in December 2020.
We hope that our project will give people a sense of being involved in a creative community and feel less isolated. This page will become a gallery for the work of our artists from Cornwall and Glasgow as it comes in. We will also post work on Facebook for people to share and chat about.
