This papier-mache dog measures 30(w) x 25(h) x 11(d) cm

Female artists make these quirky sculptures at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre, as part of a Visual Arts Certificate offered through Greenbush Art Group (member of Desart) and the Batchelor Institute. This program has been running for over ten years with a focus on teaching transferable skills.

Interestingly, the women cannot be paid for their art, as prisoners are not allowed to receive money in this way. The funds are paid instead to the Department of the Attorney General and Justice, which is part of the Northern Territory Government. Therefore the funds are channelled towards providing programs such as the Visual Arts Certificate that allow prisoners to develop new skills and express their creativity.

The dog sculptures are created out of easily sourced, recycled and repurposed materials with a sense of playfulness and were exhibited as part of Desert Mob, 2018, where the your new dog sculpture was acquired! Knowing their artworks are being exhibited and sold gives the prisoners an immense sense of satisfaction.
