According to local artist and early childhood art teacher Alice Blue, drawing and painting are great ways to reduce stress, connect to your inner voice and be in the moment.
Alice – who also has a Diploma in Art Therapy – is holding ‘playshops’ to share the numerous benefits of artmaking.
“Art has been a hand to hold for me over the years.” she says. “It is something that has always been there for me and I am keen for others to experience the joy and calm that artmaking can bring.”
‘Relax with Art’ playshops are suitable for adults, and include all art materials needed. Plus no art experience is necessary!
