‘I had no experience of art before this but now I love it and it has been a cathartic process in dealing with my past and a distraction from my current health problems’
‘I will never be a great artist but that doesn’t matter. For me the main thing was to find ways of blocking out the pain messages from the brain and this is working for me’
You do not need any prior experience of the arts to join our courses – we just ‘have a go’ and enjoy each other’s company! Take a look at the sort of courses we run using the filters below and click on a course to find out more.
As well as courses, there is the opportunity for work alongside Artlift’s Creative Navigator on a more bespoke, potentially longer-term programme of Arts on Prescription. This is specifically for adults who perhaps have complex mental health issues and/or who are struggling to find ways to manage their chronic pain. Contact email@example.com to find out more about this tailored option.
