Outreaching Creativity

When I'm not in the studio, painting or teaching term time specialised classes, I'm zipping about the country delivering focused creative programmes to all manner of groups, from mental health, hospitals, schools, groups living with autism, dementia or physical disabilities.

I believe creativity is beneficial to all and so together we devise accessible creative activities for your group that bring out each person's best!

Creativity for all

Regardless of ability, there's a creative outlet for everyone. 

We gear each project towards fulfilling potential, focusing on  what we can do rather than on what we can't.

Dementia Friendly

It's never too late to try something new - creativity has no age limit!

Creative projects can be a fantastic way of facilitating reminiscence, conversation and general well being.

Managing Mental Health

Art is a fantastic way to switch off and focus on the moment. 

Using hands and being creative allows for a bit of 'me' time with classes devised to promote self esteem and enjoyment.

Each resident looks forward to art club, the interaction between each person is fantastic, they just light up and look forward to class each week. Plus, Sandra’s given me so many ideas to continue with.
