Art From the Heart
One hour Creative Arts Sessions for students. Participants express themselves and have fun using paints, canvases and more. There are no expectations and they are encouraged to express themselves. They will be encouraged to develop personal space, focus and emotional balance.
All individuals who create work through the Art From the Heart Workshops will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in an exhibition we will organise within the school. You may choose to create work to sell at school fundraising events. An exhibition or art sale acknowledges their achievement and enables participants to realise the self-esteem and achievement which comes from watching others react to something they have made themselves. This can provoke a powerful mind-set change.
The Arts provide the opportunity to interact proactively as opposed to reactively. Interactions become non-confrontational when perceived expectations and boundaries are removed. Arts for Life Project’s open approach is holistic and person-centred; ensuring that each participant has the full focus of interaction without personal agenda. There is no forced conversation. Activities are always achievable, calm and permit hidden skills to develop naturally.
