FINE ART TO WELLBEING – Online
a free 6-week online creative self-development course for adults struggling with stress, anxiety and depression. To enrol you must be 18+ and living in Warwickshire.

Level of difficulty:  advanced
The course is designed for people who have already completed one Art for Wellbeing course with us, and for those who are now looking to further develop their self-awareness and creative thinking skills.

We think about creativity as making something new and original, but in fact the root meaning of creativity means ‘to grow’.
“It has really helped me get in contact with my emotions and to understand why I am feeling this way.  I have found it difficult this last year with the pandemic and although it took me many weeks to open up, it felt good!”  (Participant July’21)
