Our South Wales and Mid Wales Region’s ‘ESOL Summer School’ learners had a fantastic time on their excursion to the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in August. Learners were given a tour around the gallery and given background knowledge about each room and the artists.

This event was a great way for asylum seekers and refugee learners to learn about Welsh artists and integrate themselves into the community. Our learners were able to develop their skills and recreate pieces of art using the same techniques and material the famous artists used, just like artist Anya Paintsil. Our learners walked through the immersive cardboard sculptures of Carlos Bunga and divulged into his perception of relationships between humans and nature.

Our tutor Jessica Maloney says, “It was an excellent opportunity for our learners to recreate local art and learn about the history of Glyn Vivian himself and his famous collections.”

The Glyn Vivian Art Gallery offers free activities for the whole family, from joining the mosaic group to taking children to the arts and crafts sessions. The Welcome group is designed to bring Asylum seekers and refugees together through group art projects, this can be done by meeting online or face to face. Transport funding can be arranged in addition to a hot drink at the café. As well as the famous artists’ work, recent collaborations from the public are seen on display at the gallery from embroidery and fabrics to postcards to the future. There really is something for everyone!
