Project Work

Art is a great way to spend time together playing and learning. Under the umbrella of mental health our project work supports people to overcome barriers, fulfil their potential and participate fully in their community.

Psychological wellbeing is improved through education, creative activity and
shared understanding. Absolutely no experience is necessary — only a willingness to participate.

Make sense of your thoughts and do something that is fun and relaxing that boosts wellbeing, and make some great art in the process!

Workshops and Kids' Workshops: Coming Soon

We are currently scheduling our public workshops, which will include Life Drawing, Portraiture, an Introduction to Sculpture and Mindfulness.

There will also be a workshop on The Creative Imagination - Depression & Anxiety: What is it, and how to overcome it?

Silent Screaming

Through the emotion of fear, we are all connected. This project brought together a group of individuals to look at fear, how it manifests itself and, in the face of our fears, how we behave. During the process, some of this silent fear was released.

Extraordinarily Ordinary

We decided to look at everyday, ordinary things and considered, as a group, what they meant. Inspiration for the name came from a comment made by one of its members.

Probation Project

A psychologically informed creative arts project that invited participants open to the Probation Service to learn to open up creative expression enabling mutual understanding and positive use of the imagination.

Early Projects

We delivered our first project, Alienation and Isolation, in Basingstoke in 2012 with funding from University of Winchester.
