ADULTS with learning disabilities are being supported to sell their artwork through an online gallery.

Art Out There is a Chichester-based project which aims to make the work of the artists more visible within the wider community.

The artists are creating online galleries of their work with support from staff Starburst Arts, which is based at the Wrenford Centre.

Artist Phillip Judd said: ‘I like it that people can see what I can do, it makes me feel included in the community. I enjoy updating my Weebly page, I can do that by myself now. I also really like the response I get when I’m on the Starburst Facebook page.’

Fellow artist Marc Talmage said: ‘It makes me feel good that somebody has bought my painting. Making some money is fantastic, I’m going to use it towards my holiday.’

The artists’ work can be seen at bit.ly/1d5gmxn. For more details email starburstarts@hotmail.co.uk.
