Creativity flows thanks to Quota

DRAWING, painting and pottery classes were activities Quota International of Whitsunday hosted as part of their "Quota Quits" month.

Each year Quota members "quit" something for the entire month and donate the funds to an agreed project, with this year's being art classes for people with disabilities.

Four Whitsunday residents took part in the classes that were hosted by Art Whitsunday member Linda Forrester at her home in Cannonvale.

Ms Forrester said the participants have been quite talented.

"I've loved working with these guys, they are very creative," she said.

Work Connections senior consultant Julie Rolfe said the classes were a terrific social and creative outlet.

"It helps engage the participants in something else within the community," she said.

Jeremy Lammens is one such participant who said he enjoyed all three activities.

Ms Forrester said she would be happy to continue the classes if enough interest was generated.
