The West Cheshire Autism Hub is delighted to be running two of ‘Helen’s artsy sessions’ on Zoom in May.
Putting aside time for creative expression has great benefits for mental health and wellbeing, making art can be both relaxing and reduce stress, and making art with others can bring connection and reduce feelings of isolation. It’s also just more fun.
‘Helen’s artsy sessions’ will take place from 4pm to 5.30pm on Friday 7 May and from 4pm to 5.30pm on Friday 21 May, with a ‘safe place’ theme for the first session and a ‘tomorrow’ theme for the second one.
If you enjoy being creative but struggle to make time for it, would like to meet other autistic adults who enjoy making art, or are interested in being more creative but don’t know where to start, this is ideal for you.
The online sessions will be a safe space for you to create art using any medium you have already at home. You can create art around each theme or do your own thing. At the end of each session, there will be an opportunity for you to share and talk about your art, but this isn’t compulsory. During the art session, you’ll be welcome to ask questions around various mediums or ideas.
If you’d like to take part in any of the art sessions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll then be sent a Zoom invite so you can get involved.
