Camouflage continuing to inspire Leamington artists

Leamington Editorial 1st Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

CAMOUFLAGE continues to inspire Leamington artists.

As part of the town’s camouflage festival, arts group Painting for Pleasure created an exhibition about the art of camouflage, featuring everything from camouflage reptiles to landscapes.

The group – made up of disabled people, those living with and recovering from illness and carers – was awarded money from the Heart of England Community Foundation ‘Comic Relief Local Communities Programme’.

This grant enabled the group to experiment with camouflage at classes held at the Westbury Centre in South Leamington.

*ACTIVITIES inspired by camouflage were on offer at the Pump Room Gardens over the weekend.

People of all ages weaved camouflage netting to create pop-up bird hides, painted a miniature town in camouflage, made masks using leaf rubbings and more at the event which was run in conjunction with the Leamington Art Gallery and Museum’s ‘Concealment and Deception Camouflage’ exhibition.

The exhibition, which looks at the part Leamington played in creating camouflage, is on display until October 16.
