Artshine is an informal arts-based course run by a professional artist. For people who have low to moderate mental health issues, the course provides a safe space for participants to be themselves; to have a break from troubling feelings and thoughts; and to discover new creative interests in a relaxed setting.
Participants are offered an introduction to a range of different art activities, and supported to develop their own particular creative interests. No previous arts experience is necessary. Artshine is not art therapy, but focuses on using arts and creativity to improve mental and emotional wellbeing.
