Arts Lab this spring is hosting outdoor art sessions at the Glade in South Devon, as part of the Woods for Wellness programme of Woodland Presents’ community wellbeing services.

The recent crisis has exposed more than ever, growing issues of mental health in our communities. Creativity is a fantastic tool to help people feel more connected, motivated to make positive changes and inspired to build a sense of purpose and meaning into daily existence.

The activities always start by providing an open, non-judgemental environment in which to express and create freely with the guidance of a professional artist. This sets the stage to help:

• reduce levels of anxiety and a sense of isolation

• boost confidence and provide a voice

• strengthen community and friendship connections

What we will do

Explore the woods through creative making together. Using our surroundings as both inspiration and a place to find objects to create art with, we will make woodland sculptures, draw and paint a giant and collaborative piece of art. This is a great way to free up your creativity, reconnect in a naturally therapeutic woodland setting.

Everyone can take home with them their own drawings, a section of the collaboratively-made artwork and photographs of the sculptures (if you bring your cameras/ phones with you). Materials & Equipment provided.

Who for

Any groups/ individuals over 7 years old (children must be accompanied by an adult). Please come dressed appropriately – in other words, not your ‘Sunday best’. Imagination essential!
