It's not about being Picasso, it's about being you!
YOU DON'T NEED ART SKILLS, YOU WILL LEARN
Relax – Rebalance – Revitalise
In these group art for enjoyment and wellbeing classes, I will guide you through achievable painting and drawing projects that are fun, rewarding and relaxing. We will work with the spectrum of colours, allowing their healing, enlivening power to colour our inner landscape and express our creativity. And we will work with form and shape, finding rhythm and balance between inner and outer, so that we can find our own inner balance where we are centered peacefully in ourselves.
It is art-making with a focus on process, not outcome. You will, however, also learn techniques and create beautiful artworks through it. Mindful creativity helps you centre and refresh yourself in our busy, noisy modern world.
Everyone is welcome, from expert artist to ‘I can’t paint’.
Art for wellbeing is all about the therapeutic benefits and enjoyment of doing art. No ability or previous experience is needed. I will guide you through every stage, and there is no assessment or criticism of your work. Silencing the outcome-orientated inner critic is an important part of mindful creativity; I support all participants on their path towards achieving this and being present in the moment with themselves and their art making.
All art materials are provided,
and this is included in your course fee.
