Since July 2010, arts tutor Jeff Walker, of the Corn Loft Studio, has been leading a series of workshops with four servicemen: John, Adam, Joe and Barry. The aim is to develop their visual arts skills, explore ideas, and document their experiences.

In mid-September the servicemen and project organisers visited the Imperial War Museum to view and select artworks for a ‘taster exhibition’. This exhibition will be held in February 2011 at the John Creasey Museum in the Salisbury Library & Galleries, and will feature the servicemen’s work in progress, complementing the pieces from the Imperial War Museum Collection.

As the work progresses, professional artists will be invited to mentor the servicemen and make collaborations with them, culminating in a final touring exhibition, ‘Other Worlds’, in late 2011 and early 2012.

In preparation for the Taster Exhibition (February – March 2011), here are some images of the Servicemen’s work being created at the Corn Loft Studios with tutor Jeff Walker.
