Join us on Tuesday 2nd of May at 1pm at the Earlsdon Library to celebrate the establishment of Making Headway, our 4th weekly art group for 18-30yr olds.
Our Tilly supports members of the group to learn a range of fine art practices including drawing, painting, ceramics, as well as Adobe Photoshop, video/photography and to tell their story through a powerful visual and verbal language. We will help them build a strong and personal art portfolio and progress to accredited art courses at College or University.
A life-coach will support members of this group to increase their self-understanding and to gain a different perspective on their own circumstances affecting their sense of well-being.
The life coach will also help with practical matters such as benefits and finances, CV’s, job searches and interviews, as well as accessing therapies and in fact anything that stands in the way of confidence, self-esteem, and direction in life.
Additionally, members of this group will design and publish an annual book containing artwork, documentations, and personal statements created during the weekly sessions. These books will powerfully tell their story and celebrate how far they have travelled.
We will also showcase their talents at local venues Fargo/Herbert Gallery and demonstrate that the visual arts are a powerful tool for good mental health.
