Studio Upstairs believes in artistic practice as a valuable way to create meaning and purpose in life, leading from isolation to community.
Aims of the course
The courses for adults, aged 18 and above provides an opportunity for people struggling with life’s difficulties to gain a new skill in a safe, open minded and creative environment.
No previous experience in art making is needed and a experienced artist tutor will lead you though the techniques and processes. All materials are provided.
All materials included.
The course will run weekly on a Friday and will begin with a taught session that will include a introduction to tools, art mediums and techniques. The day will continue with your tutor available to offer suggestions and help.
Our tutors are qualified art therapists and physiotherapists.
The course teaches people the basics of painting and soapstone carving, prepares participants for continuing with pieces when they move on from the studio and is a positive step towards using art as an expression.
At the end of each course, a celebration evening will be held to invite friends and family to enjoy and share in the work created at the studio during the 6 weeks.
These courses are supported by Bristol City Council.
