  • The Blank Canvas group visits to Margate Museum

Blank Canvas brings younger and older people together, to help them to explore similarities and differences and to interact with and enjoy art together.

Through engaging and thought-provoking projects such as the national award-winning Time of Our Lives, trips to London galleries and twice monthly meetings, the group exchanges ideas, experiences and reflections with each other, as well as working towards creating a group art work.

The relaxed and open free sessions run twice a month on Tuesdays, starting on 13 Sept from 4.30 - 6:30pm and are directed by the needs of the group.

Blank Canvas participants have met artists, run workshops and made a real impact on the gallery's future.
