We think about creativity as making something new and original, but in fact the root meaning of creativity means ‘to grow’. In this course you will explore how art can help you look at things from a fresh perspective and map a different way forward.
Art materials you will need: white paper, pencil, colour pencils, scissor, any glue, magazines or newspapers.
– de-stress and channel your mental energy
– learn to express yourself through your own visual language
– learn to cultivate ‘me-time’ to improve focus and concentration
The course is suitable for total beginners as well as experienced artists, and anyone looking for alternative coping strategies to improve mental well-being.
It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or a complete beginner. The focus of this course is not on teaching traditional art skills, but on experiencing how mental stress can be relieved through art and to encourage creativity in every day life.
The Coventry Recovery & Wellbeing Academy offers a huge range of courses and workshops to promote personal development and self-management of mental health conditions. All courses are free and open to anyone over the age of 18 living in Coventry and Warwickshire.
