Art & Soul - Online Session

Art for Wellbeing Online Session
One You South Gloucestershire

Being creative is widely accepted as helping people manage their mental health and generally feel better. It also incorporates Connect and Learn, two of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing. So why not join us for a weekly look at some basic art skills in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Each week we will explore a basic technique such as colours, shading, shape and share experiences and knowledge with each other. NO previous art experience is necessary as this is a very basic introduction, with emphasis very much on enjoying the creative process together!

You will need paper and any type of pen/pencil/paint etc that you prefer to use.

Week 1 - Intro, warm up activities, basic materials

Week 2 - Explore tone/shape/colour

Week 3 - Using the grid method and still life

Week 4 - Portraits

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the tutor Tony on 07989679482.
