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.

Please contact Janna at with any questions or to register your interest.
