Participating in a creative program can help you cope and express strong thoughts and emotions. Studies have shown that engaging in any creative process can promote mental healing – from a simple drawing or collage, to looking at art or talking about it can lower stress and anxiety; make one feel more relaxed and happier; find meaning in life experiences and shift ones focus from pain and stressful thoughts.
These classes are also a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and feel a sense of accomplishment with completed artwork.
Most of our programs are successfully running via Zoom – so why not book a program today!
