Art work on recycled furniture with young people

In 2013 Mr Dee was asked to work with Shabby2Chic as we have a great working partnership with this fantastic company

http://sandrajohnson.vpweb.co.uk/About-Us.html

Mr Dee worked with a young person to develop  his art work on to a piece of recycled furniture which sold for £60

casey box

The young person who painted this has a real talent for illustration.

We suggested he develop one particular art work for adding to a

t-shirt.

Not only did the young man in  pass his award: gaining confidence and self esteem with regards his skills. He was able to see the potential to take his work forward and develop a  business selling his art work in the future.
