Info Relationships; in Art and Life – Reconnecting to self, others and art through group and individual creative practice and dialogue.

A series of Expressive Arts workshops for all Artists – No experience needed.

These workshops are about reconnecting with your Art, Passion, Self and Others. For some, it may be the first time since leaving school, for others, since yesterday, whenever, it doesn’t matter. Whether you just wish to try something new, explore with others, or if you’re going through a challenging period and are interested in looking for creative ways to support yourself, we invite you to join our Expressive Arts sessions.

Additional to practices for individuals and groups, we will endeavour to engage in short discussions about how Artists have, and how we might use our creative practice to broach subjects often avoided in life, such as isolation, death, and anger; finding ways to work with these in an Expressive Artistic manner.

Artistic exploration, in and of itself, is healing for mind, body and soul (as are tea breaks with really yummy biscuits and maybe even the occasional cake) – Bring an open heart, an open mind, and wear clothes you can be messy in, clothes that may not be the same when you leave… you may not be the same when you leave either!

Working with Mixed Media – playing with all kinds of materials, including Paint ( Watercolour, Acrylic, and Tempera), Pastels (Oil and Chalk), Charcoal, Ink, Graphite, Pencil, and Mono Printing. All basic materials provided (Paints, brushes, paper etc) – with extra materials, if wished-for (Canvas, large quantities of paint, ink etc) for bigger projects – available at affordable prices.
