ART FOR LIFE

CREATIVE WELLBEING WORKSHOPS

ART FOR LIFE  is a series of creative workshops that include painting, drawing, words and movement.


We focus on using the imagination and understanding how engaging in the arts can help us develop skills to reduce stress, reinforce playfulness and gain new insights.    


The sessions aim to enhance people’s wellbeing by engaging as a group in structured creative activities, run by a qualified and experienced practitioner.   


You will be guided through the art-making experience where you are encouraged to find your own meaning in your work as you bring your 'art experiments' to life.


There is no need to be ‘good’ at art as there is no end result - the emphasis is on taking part, learning something new and having fun in the process.    

Each week we will explore different techniques and exercises including:

Colours and Emotions
