Postcards of Joy help Newbury school for deaf pupils
ARLINGTON Arts recently invited people to create and donate a postcard piece of artwork about joy – what brings you joy? What does it feel like? What is joy?
The response was overwhelming, with more than 150 pieces made from a mix of media and all sorts of subjects.
All the postcards are available to buy for £20 each inclusive of postage and packaging (or £20 for three round postcards), with all proceeds going to Mary Hare School for Deaf Children.
The venue would love you to let it know which pieces are your favourites – you can vote for up to five by Friday, April 30.
The five most popular will be printed as postcards and sold in aid of Mary Hare.
Additionally, all Year 7 students at Mary Hare got involved in creating brightly-coloured circular postcards. The students had been looking at the paper cut-out designs by the artist Henri Matisse and they used this technique to develop their own designs.
Working on the theme Under the Sea, where things are brightly-coloured and magical, they used the combination of bright colours and shapes and in the hope their art will also bring people joy.
To view the exhibition in its entirety, vote for your favourites and purchase any of the artwork please visit https://arlington-arts.com/joy-postcards/
All profits from Arlington Arts Centre go directly to Mary Hare, a school and national charity supporting deaf children.
