Creative arts for health and well being

We are a creative community space for anybody who wants to use the arts for well-being. As a charitable trust we have been running for 33 years. There is no required level of expertise needed, many of our participants have no previous art experience, while others come to us with a toolbox of knowledge and skills. Everyone is welcome.

If you think that you would like to try any of our activities ring us for an appointment. We can show you through our art studios so that you can get a better idea of what we do. 

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 to share accomplishments.  Contact us. 

We are a registered charitable trust (CC34484) and are dependent on grants and donations. If you would like to support Arts for Health you can donate here.
