A keen artist has completed an Arts Award at the Harris Museum in Preston.
Fiona Cheetham, 25, has now fulfilled all the criteria for the Bronze Arts Award - this has included drawing, felting, embroidery, and jewellery making.
The scheme is aimed at supporting young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills, and to achieve a national qualification.
Fiona has taken part in the scheme over the last two years and in the coming months is hoping to start the silver level of the scheme.
During the programme Fiona also lead a group of young people from the Young Harris arts group, in an origami workshop.
A spokesman for the museum said: “As a person with learning disabilities herself, Fiona really enjoys sharing the freedom and confidence she’s found through her artwork with others and encouraging them to do the same.
“Fiona is looking forward to starting her Silver Arts Award in the near future, but for the moment she’s enjoying learning yet another new skill: she’s taking part in pottery classes at Preston College and hopes that soon she might even be able to submit one of her pottery pieces to the Harris Open exhibition, taking place this December.”
