Alice, leader of Nu Gen: “I work in both art and design and this includes painting murals, designing textiles and teaching art classes. At Nu Gen we look at all different topics, artists and techniques during Nu Gen - it’s a friendly group and we have lots of fun. Art is for everyone - there is no ‘right’ way to draw or be creative - the main thing is to get started and see what happens!

“A few ideas to try at home– focusing on kitchen inspiration! Draw your weekly shop or the contents of your fruit bowl/snack cupboard. Can you make art with food? Try making something simple with dried goods such as lentils, pasta and rice. Take a look at the work of Manami Sasaki and Haneefah Adam for inspiration”.
