loudwater 6Art is creative, it is design, we experience and explore and challenge, and it adds value to all of our lives in many different ways.

Vision Homes Association believes that people should be able to express themselves creatively in whatever way they choose. Loudwater Studio is, therefore, responsive to the needs of those that use it, offering the opportunity to experience and practice the arts through a wide range of media.

loudwater 7Loudwater Art Studio was set up using funding from the National Lottery Arts Council, and is designed to be accessible to people with disabilities. The Studio offers support and guidance by artists and trained support workers who are committed to their work. There is no emphasis on finished works of art, but rather on the journey, allowing people to explore areas of interest in new and exciting ways. Many people that Vision Homes support have visual impairments. The Studio therefore, challenges everyday perceptions of the visual arts and encourages people to experiment using all of their senses.

loudwater 3Loudwater Art Studio is not only used by those that are supported by Vision Homes, but also by other people with disabilities and it is also open to all members of the community. It offers a welcoming and stimulating environment for the exploration and creation of contemporary arts.

The Studio has worked alongside national and regional organisations to provide workshops and events. It has also been involved in various art exhibitions. Vision Homes believes it has a highly positive impact on all those who access the facilities and is working to build on previous success so that it can continue to offer opportunities for many years to come.

soundstudio3We now have a fully-equipped sound studio within the Loudwater Studio. Both service users and the local community will be able to use this facility to create their own music, sound-memories and spoken verse recordings.
