For adults dealing with mental health challenges, who feel they could benefit from some escape into creative making. Every Wednesday morning we meet at our kitchen tables with art materials and a cuppa, ready for a morning of creative activities and friendly chat.

You do not have to be ‘good’ at art; every level is welcome. Working with abstract painter Sara Downham-Lotto, you will have fun developing drawing skills and freely exploring and experimenting with painting materials and collage. The sessions are very much participant led, with guidance from Sara and a new challenge each week where imagination and thinking out of the usual box are encouraged.

Much of the work is based on individual responses to music, nature, Sara’s own paintings and the work of each other and other artists. The pace varies and embraces what those in the session want to follow or express on the day.

The support and encouragement found in these sessions is a rare find when one is embarking on a journey of recovery/self-discovery. It is also a valuable asset to the Mental Health Community and indeed the local community.’ Anne

‘We are so enjoying the sessions. They have been a turning point for George who is now on tremendous form – very expressive and talkative.’ George’s mother

At the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to sign up for and to purchase your favourite piece, printed and framed.
