Robert has amazed us all with his dedication to improving his painting skills since he made the decision to join the Cobham group in October last year. Robert does not always find social situations easy, but has found our small group to be friendly and welcoming when he has been feeling depressed. Regular therapy and Conquest Art sessions help Robert to stay positive and accomplished.
Since all his relatives live overseas, the group also provides a weekly social activity for Robert who lives alone with his rescued dog, Flo for companionship.
Despite not doing any artwork since his school days, Robert has shown a keen interest in improving his drawing and watercolour skills both at home and during our sessions. Robert is a keen animal lover and each week we are impressed by his beautifully realistic sketches and paintings of wild animals.
Robert is proof positive that Conquest Art groups can have a positive and important effect on the lives of individuals coping with mental health issues.
