What should I expect?
Wellbeing Arts Groups are informal and fun creative art sessions. An experienced artist gently introduces a range of ideas and techniques to help participants explore their own creativity and learn new skills at their own pace. No previous experience is necessary.
Wellbeing Arts groups offer a relaxed supportive atmosphere where everyone feels excepted for who they are. They provide a safe space in your week to enjoy 'me time' with no pressures. The lead artist will guide you through each activity and help you find the confidence to develop your own creative process. And you're always welcome to just sit, enjoy the company and a cup of tea!
This group is also the only time I speak to people other than my family/partner or therapists. It is therefore invaluable to me. I have been able to come ‘out of my shell’…during the course. I can talk with more confidence to my fellow group members/attendees – even if this confidence is yet to spill out into my everyday life. I think with continued participation my general wellbeing and confidence can only be improved/increased.“
