Young Volunteer Bags Mr & Mrs Claus Photo
We are pleased to announce that one of The Art Yard's youngest volunteers, Kieran Mills, successfully delivered on his 1st professional commission for the Express & Star newspaper over the weekend.
His task was to take photographs of the big Christmas light 'switch-on' at Upper Gornal, Dudley. The weather couldn't have been more against him completing the task but like a well seasoned photographer Kieran stuck to the objective of photographing Mr & Mrs Clause in their sleigh and also the people who turned up to see Santa arrive.
Everyone at the gallery in Cradley Heath is so proud of Kieran who is a level 3 photography student at Halesowen College and is planning to continue his studies at university.
We are also grateful to Isabelle Parkin who wrote the newspaper article for the Express & Star featuring the photographs.
Kieran was mentored at the event by TAY resident artist and professional photographer Peter Loperman.
