Volunteering at Art Club was the most enjoyable experience during my internship. Kamaljit and Mukesh are great teachers, always encouraging and motivating the children to learn about arts and culture with the most fun projects, whilst using a variety of art materials.
Volunteering as a graphic designer was a bit more challenging, it required a lot more organisation and technical skills, which I wasn’t confident with. But, with Kamaljit always supporting and tutoring me, she helped me improve and develop new skills on Website Building and Social Media Marketing. She is also the person who has encouraged me to complete my online course “How to Create a Social Media Campaign”.
Even during the lockdown, Mukesh and Kamaljit were very supporting, as they leant me some of their equipment so I can complete some of my volunteering hours from home.
I am very grateful I had the opportunity to meet Mukesh and Kamaljit and to volunteer for Art at the Heart, as I have experienced the “behind the scenes” of a small independent business and I have now become much more competent as an artist.
