Relax. Play. Create.
Here at Art Studio we conduct art classes for all ages.
I just love it when new clients say to me ‘ Oh I’d love to paint, but I’m just not creative’. Then this is the place for you. In my experience as an art teacher, the clients who have said that me are now painting commissions!
There is no need to feel shy because you start where you are at and what you would like to learn. You learn as you go! You are FREE to select your own subject matter, and the only time frame is the one you create for yourself. We want you to enjoy your art class, and have fun! You also network with other students and so therefore it becomes a social event as well, and not only a creative encounter.
I like to adopt several different approaches to art on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Art is a very powerful tool for healing from trauma. It certainly helps those who secretly suffer with anxiety, especially for children suffering anxiety due to related learning concerns such as Autism.
ART is a way of healing through shape, line colour, textures and inner personal exploration. My experience as an art therapist is one way for your to get started on your own healing journey, and I know from experience you will not be disappointed. Without you realising, art teaches you patience.
It is a wonderful form of relaxation from the mind’s busy chatter!
So come along and try it out? We would love to meet you and see what we can do for you…….it takes you to take action, and we will do the rest.
THE ART STUDIO
The art studio is well equipped with most of the Visual Arts forms catered for. You can learn drawing, painting with Acrylics and some oils ,
painting using textured mediums, watercolour and ink painting, decoupage, scrap booking and mixed media.
Maybe you are interested in sculpture like clay building and ceramics, or try simple printmaking techniques.
There is wheelchair access to the studio, and plenty of room for you to paint and be brave!
Bright natural light filters through the windows making it great space to paint and you have access to led light beams for rainy and dull days when there is not a lot of bright natural sunshine outside!
The Studio itself has a calming energy so that when you are here, it is easy for you to just forget the outside world for a few hours.
Fragrant oils waft through the air and soft music playing in the background helps get you into the artistic ‘zone’.
Art is known as a meditative experience. Art is fun. Art is challenging. Art makes you a better person!
Art students are always supportive and enthusiastic about what they are creating and support and acknowledge the creations of others.
It is part of the studio ethos to be willing to participate in engaging artistic conversation with others to explore techniques, other ideas, and artistic traditions! There are no right or wrong answers
just thoughts, ideas, and fun.
