Recently we visited Aylesbury Prison to work on a music and Art project there. The theme was built around restorative justice and positive thinking.
During the graf session the group of 6 were split into 2 groups. Group A were tasked with learning how to design in Blackbooks. Group B had to learn how to design on canvas. During the Afternoon they had to teach each other the skills they had learned in the morning.
This was a challenging session for them as many had not done any Art or had done little but they all managed to produce work. The work they have produced will be part of an Arts Award they are currently undertaking.
We also talked about the challenges for them personally on the outside and ways to overcome problems and goals to set for the future.
Thanks to all the inmates at Aylesbury Prison for putting time into this project.
