Workshops and Experiential Groups

 

Have you ever wanted to discover the artist within you but been too nervous to make a start, fearing you have no ability?

Art workshops help us express themselves with an approach designed to help us relax.

You will be encouraged to play with art materials such as paint, pastels, charcoal, pencils, or work with clay. Simply come and enjoy the process and to be less self-critical. Programmes are tailored to fit each student, and participants are encouraged to work at their own pace. Everything produced is valued as part of the process of self- expression to find the unique creativity we all possess, but fear we do not have.

Sessions are for both adults or for children of all abilities. There is no right way to paint a picture. Creativity From Within in her relaxed sessions encourages everyone to value everything that is produced, as all work is a part of the great process of learning to express oneself, and find the unique way of working that we all possess but don’t always know that we do. Everyone has an artist within them.

For example art for personal growth can help with:

* Reflection

* Express feelings, emotions

* Insight/self-awareness

* Emotional worries

* Coping with change

* Stress and anxiety

* Relationship difficulties

* Making decisions

* Realise own potential

* Relaxation

The nature of the activity

No experience of art is required, and no special artistic ability; there is no right way of doing it. This is also good for people who find it difficult to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. Relax and use the media in any way you would like.

The individual sessions last for 50 minutes, usually once a week.

Group work is 1.5 hours. It is possible to try a session to see if you like it.
