Nurture teens -
Art for Anxiety
Peer support group for teens; developing self-worth, tools for self expression and easing anxiety through art.
This group has changed and evolved over time. It has become a way to enable teens to use art as a medium to connect with and accept themselves.
Using art in this way allows for expression, an outlet for unresolved tension, plus a tool to use in everyday life.
As part of this 6 week art programme we will use mindfulness, discussion and forms of meditation, while exploring design, form and colour in drawing, painting and sculpture.
This workshop is about creating and expressing and not a focus on the final product. An enthusiasm for art is helpful - to enjoy the programme, but skill and artistic talent is not necessary or required.
The Hutt Art Society has a relaxed and calm atmosphere and students are encouraged to make themselves at home. We are all learning, and there no place for judgement and criticism, only support and encouragement. That doesn't mean we don't stretch and challenge students to get the best out of them.
