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
Paint how you feel
Mapping the body
Drawing your body map
Painting an image in the here and now
Paint an image of your future
Painting a poem
Creating an art journal
Think about your life story
Symbol and metaphor
Painting an image together
