Newquay Art for Wellbeing – a 16 week programme.

Research suggests that arts and creative group activities may help with mental health problems, they can boost self-esteem, help express thoughts and feelings, and provide social interaction. Being creative can provide a welcome distraction from life’s stresses, helping to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Art for Wellbeing is a therapeutic art group which is held every fortnight and aimed at inspiring everyone who joins to discover or rediscover the benefits to wellbeing that being creative together brings.

You will be supported in learning many different art techniques using a variety of mixed media and will hopefully be inspired to incorporate art into your everyday life.

It may be that you are already an accomplished artist or that you have little, if any, confidence in your artistic abilities. It doesn’t matter – all that is required is a willingness to have a go and be prepared to have some fun along the way.

Learning a new skill can really boost confidence, self-esteem and feelings of self-worth, and you can continue using the art skills learnt as a wellbeing tool to help stay well.

The group is small, friendly and informal, and provides social contact, opportunities for friendship, and access to peer and professional support.

What do I need? For the first session, please bring an A4 sketchbook and book of palette paper.

When? Tuesdays 10-12 noon, every fortnight.
