“I wasn’t prepared for the warmth and kindness I received. The word ‘art’ and all the scary connotations it brought with it hadn’t entered my head yet, but I knew i’d have to let it go and just try.” – Virtual studio member
For just three letters, ‘ART’ can be a big, intimidating word. You need no previous experience of making to embark on this creative adventure,
Each week you will be led through a serious of creative exercises to explore drawing, collage, printmaking, embroidery, ceramics and more. The Creative Studio is a place to play, collaborate and learn to love making and creating. It is an opportunity for you to surprise yourself and say “Wow! I made that.”
It is possible to live with a mental illness and move on in life especially when the support and belief in you is there. Having a purpose to feel useful and be encouraged to step outside the box once in a while.” -Creative Studio Member
