Did you know?

That taking time out to create art in a supportive space can: –

  • Be a fun and enjoyable way to express yourself freely as there is no right or wrong
  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Explore new ways of coping with stress
  • Learn new skills to increase self-esteem and confidence, and can help to foster resilience

What are we doing?

  • Pre-activity mindful breathing encouraging stress release and relaxation
  • Learning how to make a simple sketchbook for practice and ideas

  • Closing circle, sharing anything from the art experience (sharing is optional)
