Heart for Art
Heart for art offers a friendly environment where people in the early stages of dementia and their carers can take part in a therapeutic art session. Facilitated by a professional artist, assisted by enthusiastic local volunteers we enjoy painting with professional art materials, chatting, drinking tea and making friends. In this bright, relaxed atmosphere, people are able to express their inner self through art. Artistic ability is not needed – enjoyment is the key and we promote a “can do” philosophy.
The group meets fortnightly on a Wednesday from 10.30am – 12.30pm in the Hub at the Bankfoot Church Centre. The service is free of charge. New members and helpers would be welcome, come and visit us or call Heart for Art on 01324 718674.
We will meet on Wed 20th November 2019
Wed 4th December 2019
