Art as Stories - Telling our stories creatively with Lisa Behan and Donna McDonald.

10 weeks (Monday 12 July - Monday 13 September)

NDIS PARTICIPANTS WELCOME (Please, register your interest through Eventbrite and contact AFTM).

In this series of workshops, Lisa and Donna will help you to find ways to be creative in telling your personal story in words and images. Learn different ways of making marks with different materials and in different formats. Lisa and Donna will support you in your art journey with mindfulness practices and conversations.

By the end of the term, you will have several artworks which express your sense of self.

"We all have the ability to be creative. But sometimes, we need to be encouraged to get started. Creativity and experimenting with different art forms can play a hugely positive role in supporting our mental health, life and wellbeing as a whole".
