A creative space for you - your workshops


Arts for Health is somewhere I can go and paint when I don’t have the motivation to manage that in my own house. It helps me leave the house knowing I have somewhere I will feel safe where I am part of a community that supports each other.

Emma Billingham

Arts for health provides great support to the community. As a new artist I find that there is a sense of belonging, ownership and acceptance that makes me feel calm, satisfied and motivated.

Kim McEvilly
I felt art therapy was a great way to express my feelings about life in general.

Phillip L

I highly recommend the art therapy class at Arts for Health. I attended hour sessions once a week for six weeks and experienced some significant shifts. My understanding of how my emotions affect my physical being are decidedly more clear and I am in much closer touch with the cause and effect on myself. Of significance is the return of past levels of confidence and that I am in charge of my whole self and my choices.

I like coming to Arts for Health as it helps me to get to know new people in the community. Since I started coming to arts last year, I have felt more confident and happy. I come to art because I like coming into the community and being creative.

Lisa Tawhai

It has helped me get back into drawing and learning to paint. It’s allowed me to meet new people all of whom are very helpful and supportive. It’s helped me feel more creative and grow more confidence in my artistic abilities.
