Mindful Painting

For stress awareness month we ran a number of sessions to demonstrate the impact that drawing and painting can have on our physical body and mental health. The benefits of making art have been demonstrated in many different ways over the last few decades, from lower stress levels through to improved memory.

We offered a short talk on how making art impacts our health, giving people the opportunity to hear about the physiological changes that take place when we make art. The mindful art session reset people for the day and left them feeling refreshed and inspired to make art more often.
