HOW DO I JOIN?
If you think that you would like to attend any of our services at Arts for Health we would invite you to ring us for an appointment to come in and visit us. We would talk about your hopes and goals and show you through our art studios to give you a better idea of what we do.
Your art facilitator would offer some suggestions to start you off on your artistic journey. Alternatively if you have a specific project in mind you could start working towards that.
Many of our artists come to Arts for Health to develop their skills and techniques, while others prefer to use the arts to develop a wider social circle with like minded people.
We encourage all of our artists to participate in exhibitions and competitions when they feel ready. This is a great way to celebrate success and share their accomplishments.
