Imagine is a therapeutic arts project

Imagine is a therapeutic arts project

Imagine is the perfect name for me as prior to my experience at Imagine, I could not have imagined having anything to do with art and the idea of submitting something to an exhibition was absolutely unimaginable. The experience of being supported to play and experiment with art materials in the nurturing, spacious and quite magical studio has continued to lead me through from stuckness and self-criticism to surprise and delight. Sheila MC.D.

Right in the heart of Stroud’s mill heritage, between the canal and the river, Imagine Therapeutic Arts has developed further as a community project within the premises of Fromehall Mill

For over 11 years we have been offering an accessible and supportive studio space in which members can explore and develop their creativity within a social environment. Thanks to the support we have received from the Association for the Promotion of Artistic Therapy and the Barnwood Trust the studios are fully accessible for people with limited mobility. 

Basic art materials (watercolours, oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, clay and many others) are provided and no previous artistic experience is required to join the studio and enjoy any of our sessions:
