Meet our Christmas card artists

A group of our bike recipients came together in October with watercolour artist Anna Virabyan for two relaxing watercolour workshops. Anna, a refugee herself, led the group through the three hour workshops sharing her incredible fine art expertise and her story. The group had an amazing time together and created some truly impressive watercolour artwork.
