Artist: Mr the Beef (Inkygoodness) working with FITCAP
Young people from the area selected to work with Derby-based artist, Mr the Beef, following a presentation by Birmingham arts organisation, Inky Goodness.
Participants attended design sessions at The Vibe and the Meadway Centre and worked with the artist to develop ideas and learn new painting techniques. The group then helped the artist start to paint the owl, before it was delivered to his home studio to be finished.
