Creativity
& Wellbeing

Creativity & Wellbeing is an integral part of Strathearn Arts’ artistic programme, enabling us to engage with the community by offering a variety of artistic and creative activities.

Active engagement in the arts, culture and creativity is beneficial to the health and wellbeing of all of us. Our Creativity & Wellbeing programme creates opportunities for participation and fulfilment of meaningful experiences. Taking part can help reduce anxiety and encourage communication, cooperation, fun and laughter. 

Our Creativity & Wellbeing classes have been running for two years now, and have helped many local people with opportunities to participate in a range of expressive, social and creative activities delivered in a fun, nurturing and non-judgemental environment.

Creative Kids Art Classes

This summer we’re running 3 blocks of art classes designed for children aged 7-10. Each week the children will creatively explore a different theme under the guidance of experienced artists Liz Kemp & Jaz Grady.

The classes will give children the chance to play with and explore different art materials, including chalk and oil pastels, charcoal, watercolour crayons and some slightly surprising things. Each block of 3 classes will be based on developing drawing and making skills in a fun and friendly setting and children will be encouraged to use their imagination to bring their ideas to life.

The 3 day blocks are:
Mon 8 July - Wed 10 July NOW FULLY BOOKED
Wed 17 July  - Fri 19 July NOW FULLY BOOKED
Mon 29 July - Wed 31 July NOW FULLY BOOKED

If you would like to be added to the waiting list for any spaces that may become available please email creative@strathearnarts.org

 

With support from Perth and Kinross Council, we are able to offer free places for families who are on low incomes or are receiving benefits. For those who can cover the cost, each 3-day block costs £40 per child.

What Participants Say

I’m an unpaid carer so the group has given me some structure to my work and time to do something just for me. It has also allowed me to develop new skills and meet people – I’m otherwise quite socially isolated.

 

I struggle with social situations and I’m not confident but coming here helped to branch out and have something to do and get me out of the house every week.

 

I feel content after each session. It makes me feel calm. I am a carer at home and being creative gives we a sense of wellbeing.
