Well Art : An art for wellbeing challenge

Event details

Try something new this spring and take part in Well Art, a daily art for wellbeing challenge from home in your own time. It’s part of my Arts Council England-funded initiative, Paint Your Mind: Art As Tool.

How will the Challenge run? Each day you’ll receive (by email) an art idea and an example image – none of the ideas should take more than 30 minutes to complete.

What kind of ideas? The ideas will be flexible and cover a variety of themes and different ways art can help wellbeing & mental health – from creative grounding tools to drawing or painting a scene to absorb you.

Will I be able to share with others? Yes, there’ll be a private Facebook group where you can share artwork and see how others interpret the ideas too.

Why an idea every day? Daily art practice can be particularly positive, becoming part of your routine and a great way to have a little time out each day. And if you miss a day – just get back to it when you can!

When does the Challenge start? The Well Art Challenge will start on Saturday 6 April and run until Saturday 27th April. To sign up go to Well Art : An art for wellbeing challenge Tickets, Sat, Apr 6, 2024 at 10:00 AM | Eventbrite
