Level Best Art Cafe October I

Level Best Art Cafe October I



Welcome to our blog



The next 4 posts will cover the month of October at the Level Best Art Cafe as well as the remote and outreach sessions we have been doing.


Artco & computers trainee Jamie Croft learned how to upload photos, text, and video to our blog before lock-down and he has brushed off those skills to take on the responsibility of uploading ALL the content which appears here, whilst working from home.

It has taken a bit of relearning but Jamie is happy to be our resident blogging assistant from now on.




Our eventual new base in Colchester, which is called Rookery House is shaping up to be a very comfortable art and soical spot for trainees and staff to visit in small numbers, meanwhile we have begun to decorate the art cafe with trainees artwork and a hint at Christmas
