4Seasons is a visual arts programme working with adults with mental health issues. As the name suggests the group meet at quarterly intervals, to visit the galleries and studio. The group discuss and reflect on the artworks, and experiment with ideas, materials and processes found within the galleries to produce individual work in response.
