This programme provides a supportive, instructive and stimulating environment for people living with stroke-affect, Parkinsons, or other special needs to develop visual
arts skills.

The focus will be on the learning requirements of the group and individual learning needs. The work is deeply rehabilitative and therapeutic: it provides new meaning, creative industry and life focus for people whose regular lives have imploded.

Participants can work independently and be self directed in their choice of content and subject matter. The tutor will provide ongoing input regarding methodologies, techniques, media and guidance re subject matter. Artists will be supported in the ongoing progression of their art making capabilities and knowledge base.

The group art making process offers people the opportunity to regain motivation, and to grow a sense of new identity and purpose through creative activity.  The programmes are interesting, creatively stimulating and personal – they greatly assist the rehabilitation process of participants (mental and physical dexterity & co-ordination, and emotional and psychological stability).

Being part of a creative community, developing companionship with others with like experience, and sharing and supporting one another are central outcomes of
the programme.
