Connor Ashley started Parachute Fridays after engaging with several Art Breaks workshops before he left school. Connor has incredible capacity to use paint in large bold blocks which are then scraped using tools onto another surface. Connor works independently with colour mixing, talks about his work and takes photographs of completed paintings.
Connor enjoys observing the trains near the studio and chooses to paint outside. He comments on other participants work and is very interested in people in the studio.
Connor was recently awarded Silver from Arts Award. See Connor’s blog of his Arts Award journey here artsawardsproject.com.
