Mindful Art Club is for fun and relaxation.
Do you remember when you enjoyed art as a child, without judging your ability or results? These easy-going art sessions will help you to deal with anxiety, stress and daily worries.
Artists Peggy Melmoth and Emma Sprawson were part of the support team at Broadreach House Addiction Treatment Centre, Plymouth, offering a number of activities to the resident clients, including arts and craft workshops. When Broadreach House closed, due to a lack of funding, in July 2019, Emma and Peggy decided to bring their combined skills into the community to offer mindful art as a way to manage anxiety and stress.
Emma is trained in counselling, mindfulness, acupuncture and Indian head massage, and is a practicing artist offering unique, multi-media artworks and personalised commissions.
Peggy is qualified in clinical hypnotherapy and is also a practicing artist offering unique watercolour paintings, personalised cartoon portraits and logos for small business. She is currently studying for a counselling qualification.
The first Mindful Art Club will be held at The Brook Inn, 33 Longbrook Street, Plympton St Maurice, PL7 1NJ Plymouth, Devon, on Wednesday 25th September at 10am. The sessions will be friendly and informal, so just grab a coffee and join in. We are initially running these introductory taster sessions at a reduced rate of £2 per class.
At this session (pictured) we had eight people in the class, who described the experience as, relaxing, therapeutic, “me-time”, inspiring, colourful, energising, rejuvenating and a good form of self-care.
