Art for Wellbeing Groups

The Art for wellbeing groups are facilitated by Georgia Shearman BA/MA Ceramics.

The Art for wellbeing groups are a safe non-judgemental place where individuals can experience making in different mediums, such as printing, drawing, stencil making, painting and ceramics.

"I've never really done art before - matchstick men was about it. It's good to come to if I'm stressed as once I get into the art, it helps to take all the tension away."

Wayne, Art for Wellbeing member.

It is a place where the group members, grow confidence and self-worth through making, forming friendship’s and support networks. Being based at Easton Community Centre has encouraged and supported individuals in feeling included and a part of a community; bringing them out of isolation and giving a sense of place, and wellbeing.

"We've made it into a very creative area where everyone can come along and make art, meet friends and socialise without any pressure. It also acts as a space to ask questions and talk through things, personal and about what's happening in the world."

Emma, Art for Wellbeing co-ordinator.
