ART FOR LIFE
WEEKLY ART CLUB FOR ALL AGES.
What is the aim and what do I get out of it?
A time to relax, have time out and immerse yourself in creativity. The aim is to promote happiness and wellbeing by engaging in the art making experience in a small group.
Painting, drawing, mixed media and words are explored to open up curiosity and imagination.
Suitable for all ages and no prior art experience necessary.
Sharing and experiencing the arts as part of a group benefits on a different level to doing something alone.
The medical profession is starting to recognise the health benefits of getting together and engaging with the arts as a social experience. Whether it's painting in a group, going to a movie, a gig, or joining a choir, the social aspect is essential for us thrive as human beings.

American surf and beach photographer
I choose to photograph the work that exemplifies the calm before the storm. By reflecting upon the work, the viewer can disassociate them self with life distractions and join in the calmness of nature.
Origami is known to symbolise peace, love and longevity; butterflies symbolise hope. Legend states that the person who folds one thousand origami cranes will be granted their wish.
