open studio practice: NEW opening times!
8th January – 20th March 2018,
Monday 2-5 pm and 7-9pm
Tuesday 10am-1pm and 2-5 pm
“Clay, watercolours, oil paints, pastels – you name it, they have got it at Imagine. Here you can produce whatever you fancy, from serious art to just a play with colours, in a peaceful atmosphere. You may either be left ‘to get on with it’ quietly or discuss your work with the very patient therapists if you wish.” Elizabeth T.
This is an open studio space for you to pursue your own artistic process. The group is facilitated by one or two therapeutic art practitioners, who are available to support the participants artistically, techincally and – if needs be – emotionally. The emphasis, however, is on the members to develop their own work, in a supportive and social environment. This is a particularly good space in which to develop a theme or a body of work over a period of time. There is the possibility, if you wish, to share and review your work in the social context.
On Tuesday, there will also be the possibility to work with textiles (as well as painting, drawing and clay modelling) under the expert guidance of Sue Skrine, who will join Hisako and Laura in facilitating the creative space.
Any of the four sessions can be attended separately, or you can experience a whole day Art Retreat on Tuesday.
The cost is: £6/hour, or £15 for a 3-hour session and £25 for the whole day (please, enquire for concessions). These sessions run through term times, new members can join at any time. Basic art materials are provided, please enquire for further details.
“I came to a point where I was unable to paint or use colour. It was very painful. But at Imagine I was given the means, and accompanied, through to opening of a locked door and out again to the light, and a new freedom.” Angela G
