ART & MINDFULNESS
CULTIVATE YOUR CREATIVITY AND EMPOWER THE ARTIST IN YOU BY EXPLORING SENSATIONS THROUGH ART AND MINDFULNESS.
Art is the perfect window to help kids and young adults work on critical skills. Art is motivating, hands-on, fun, creative, and for all ages and abilities. Some students may struggle to learn social emotional skills, but art can be the pathway to help them learn as they are having fun.
Art also helps to build confidence, facilitates empathy, encourages discussion, and can be a calming coping strategy. Art activities have been shown to promote learning and understanding in new ways.

Our weekly programme offers a unique opportunity to students from all backgrounds, providing fun, educational and inspiring tuition and mentoring.
Regular drawing at any age can enhance imagination and concentration and increase self-esteem, and this can be especially beneficial for school-age children. Adults learn to be more creative and adaptable. The skills learned can also support students’ pursuit of a wide range of creative subjects in school, further and higher education, and open doors to careers in the arts, design, architecture, and science.
The studio cabinets offer a buffet of a variety of drawing, painting, printing and sculptural materials to use. And in a regular class, discovering and tapping on creativity through raw and artist mediums allow students to find individual expression. Group discussions, investigation of ideas and methods and gentle critics provide learning blocks for creative, technical and social skills. Trust in the process of art-making which brings mindfulness, resilience and patience to wider and challenging situations.
Teaching, inspiration and encouragement is provided by professional artists and designers trained locally and internationally.
