Happy Art - Meditative artistic sessions at Shuttlewood Clarke Foundation

Date: Wednesday, December 7th 2016
Categories: All Leicestershire Charnwood Activities & Events Groups & Forums

As a registered charity the Shuttlewood Clarke Foundation prides itself on offering a welcoming, supportive setting for those living in the local community and throughout Leicestershire. A new monthly taster session ‘Happy Art’ will encourage attendees to release the stresses of everyday life and strengthen one’s own ability to combat negative thought patterns. The meditative artist led sessions will promote wellbeing, through the exploration of mindfulness and painting. 

Helen Baxter, Activities coordinator at the Foundation, said:

"The sessions will take place in our new Activity Centre, a safe and inclusive space for individuals to discover new talents and learn new skills."

Session leader Rosanna Monachello added:

"The arts help to engage the brain in to the perfect state for learning by placing the individual into a state of relaxation, clearing and creativity. This is not art as you know it. This is art to help clear the soul of its burden and release the misunderstood and unseen." 

Taster sessions will run throughout January on Tuesday 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st from 10.30am – 12.30pm at Ulverscroft Activity Centre, Priory Lane, Ulverscroft, Leicestershire LE67 9PH. Booking is essential and a non-refundable payment of £4 per session in advance is required to secure your place.
