During lockdown creativity has kept me sane! Having access to online classes that weren’t available before has meant I could try new things. Moving forward from lockdown and Covid I have made a promise to myself to continue learning and practicing portrait drawing and painting. I really hope online classes will continue!
Lockdown has been a lonely place but I have really felt connected to people through art and creativity.

During the lockdown, many people have been rekindling their love of making - baking, sewing, painting, drawing and crafting we want to celebrate and showcase this.
During the lockdown, many people have been rekindling their love of making – baking, sewing, painting, drawing and crafting we want to celebrate and showcase this, and make sure that everyone can still engage with b-side’s creative programme despite the current closure of our project space and postponement of the Festival this year.
Outpost project space is on Fortuneswell High Street, Portland and has huge street-level windows – it makes the perfect safe social distancing exhibition space. Following an overwhelming response to our call out to Portland residents to show us their creativity we have a fantastic visual archive of Portland Lockdown creative talent.
Take a look at our latest posters by Portland residents Su Ashe and James Burnage.
The posters really cheer up the high street and it’s wonderful to be able to share Portland residents talents.
