SPASE  - FREE art workshops for 16-25 year olds.

FREE art workshops for 16-25 year olds.

We are very excited to announce the launch of a speciality art workshop designed to help improve emotional well-being, relieve stress and build confidence in young adults.

SPASE, or Stress and Practising the Art of Self-Expression, will be open to 15 young adults, aged 16-25. Beginning Thursday 30th January, this program aims to connect people with their emotions and others through mindful, artistic expression.

Ten weekly art workshops will use a variety of mediums (drawing, painting, mixed media and digital art) to explore various emotional themes. These workshops, facilitated by local artists, will be held every Thursday night from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m, with the final class being held on 2nd April. Each workshop will be used to discuss, reflect on and depict a certain emotion in the form of a self-portrait. These portraits can be abstract or realistic.

Designed by Janna Hudson, local artist and Public Health professional, this workshop has been created for young adults as a safe space to discuss everyday emotions and coping mechanisms while promoting community involvement. The SPASE program aims to improve the overall health, well-being and quality of life for young adults through art, culture, and community engagement.

Workshops are FREE but places are limited.
