Photo skills of those with learning disabilities the focus of exhibition

THE PHOTOGRAPHIC skills of people with learning disabilities were the focus of an exhibition in Leamington.

Through The Lens, at All Saints Parish Church, showcased the work of Heart of England Mencap customers who each chose locations and subject matter to snap their perfect picture.

They then uploaded, edited and printed their creations to display at the exhibition.

Arts Co-ordinator Val Rainbow said: “I created the course using different themes to help develop a variety of skills and to make the learning process enjoyable and interesting.

“Over the weeks we visited many outdoor locations and covered themes such as windows and doors, leaves and trees, buildings and architecture, textures, close-ups, still life, flowers and portraits to name just a few.

“Everyone on the course produce great work and each week brought new, amazing pictures.

“It was a joy to watch everyone discover newfound skills and talents and a delight to see them create something they could be proud of.”
