Art in the Woods
Art in the Woods
Date & Time
10:30 am - 12:30 pm
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.
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!
