The Open Studios provide a simple, dynamic format for art activities.

They offer a supportive, empathetic learning environment for artists to develop a sense of creative community and be involved in meaningful creative industry.

Art tutors / therapists encourage artists to be self-directed, to explore content of personal interest and significance, and to develop their own, unique style.  

Artists are guided in the use of media and techniques and encouraged to try new ideas and mediums; to tell their personal narratives through the language of visual imagery.

The facilitation is person-centred and accommodates each artist’s unique experience and perception.

This rich group environment provides a synthesis of arts practice, and therapeutic outcomes. Artists share their ideas and what they have produced with one another in a facilitated group circle.

This encourages interaction – and builds confidence, communication skills and social relationships.

Throughout the year artists have the opportunity to have their work selected for public exhibition.
