Our art sessions enable the participants to explore their creativity, experiment with a wide variety of art mediums and materials and create wonderful works of art. Our sessions have many proven benefits for the participants such as boosting their self-confidence and esteem, they’re therapeutic, stimulating, socially inclusive and improve their dexterity and motor skills.

We also reach a wide variety of venues including, residential homes, nursing homes, learning disability services, day centres, complex needs services, supported living and schools to name a few.

Rest assured all of our artists are fully trained and have an enhanced DBS check and Public Liability Insurance cover.

We deliver our art sessions to various types of client, from older people in care homes to children in after-school clubs. There are so many types of people that can benefit from our service and we encourage every artist who join’s us to explore working with different age groups.

Here are some of the types of clientele that our artists work with:

Older People

Older People, particularly those with dementia benefit greatly from our sessions. Our art sessions are the highlight of many care homes activity programs and we often find that they are keen to display the resident’s artwork around the home.

Learning Disabilities

People with learning disabilities love our sessions! Their capacity and physical/learning disabilities can mean that some require more support than others, but they are nonetheless proud of their achievements.

Children

Our after-school clubs are becoming more and more popular with children between the ages of 5 – 11. They love getting stuck in, experimenting with different mediums and techniques whilst socialising with their friends.

Toddlers

We now run sessions with toddlers between the ages of 1 – 3 and have also started delivering ‘art play’ sessions at some of our care home clients. The interactions between the older people and the toddlers are a delight to see.
