We are living in a world that moves so fast that while we are taking everything in we forget to let things out. Stored emotion, stress, and anxiety build up and get in the way of our creative thinking.
In a 24/7 world we have forgotten about self care and how to look after our brains and how to give them a rest. Art Well-being workshops can help your company by creating a safe space to explore how we see ourselves and gain a sense of self through creativity.
Although it is hard to meet in person at this time I can provide remote creative workshops, individual or group, via Zoom. A creative therapeutic space to give ourselves some psychological distance from our concerns and more importantly take some valuable time out.
Creativity is a brilliant way to start a conversation and I will guide you through different approaches and ideas to start a conversation about how we can use creativity to help our own mental health, strengthen emotional resilience and help with coping strategies (in work and at home) to aid relaxation and mindfulness through the art making process.
As well as starting a mental health conversation the main focus in well-being sessions is to take a break, take a breath, make some art and have some fun (definitely no experience or background in art is necessary or expected either).
It takes courage to make the first mark, resilience to work through mistakes and vulnerability to show who you really are through your mark making. By encouraging participants to get lost in the flow of art making we can send a clear message of calm to our brains, helping lower our blood pressure, heart rates and reduce stress and anxiety.
I have had the pleasure to be working with some of the top accountancy and communications firms in the country and I can design a bespoke well-being package for your company.
Please get in touch with any questions you may have around how art workshops can
benefit your working environment.
