Getting Creative at HCA – David

Getting Creative at HCA – David

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!”
