At Holborn Community Association we run lots of art activities for everyone from 0-99+, which over 55’s member David regularly takes part. We had a look at some of the work he’s created over the years and found out why he enjoys it:
“I started taking photos again using my disposable camera four years ago – I’ve always enjoyed doing it, it’s like a hobby.
I like to capture animals, things that are happening in the moment as well as things that make me laugh.
At the moment I take part in a pottery class at HCA, I’ve tried creative writing and poems and I also go along to the Sunday socials. Everything I’ve done here has been amazing.
I can’t read or write – it’s good fun for me to be creative. It occupies your mind instead of sitting about all day.
I plan to keep being creative and of course keep using my disposable camera!”
