Arts 4 Health Workshops, Drawing for Wellbeing

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Blimey, It’s the end of May, time has flown by this year like a little blue butterfly.

I have been fluttering like a blue butterfly here there and everywhere for the last couple of Months, thinking, networking, drawing, creating and learning. I’ll explain, on my wish list  I have many things I would like to pursue but one thing at the top of my list  is to do more Arts 4 Health workshops  as I use drawing to de-stress and unwind myself .I would like to help others with want I’ve learnt over the years from my own experiences. So since before Christmas I’ve been helping with a NHS Mental Health All being Well Art Group and I’m enjoying every minute of it. I’ve also attended a Free course  called ‘Art at The HeART’ Erewash to learn how to work with dementia patients and have been shadowed an artist and have gained a lot of experience within this area of participatory arts, besides it’s getting me out the house more as being freelance can be really lonely job sometimes and being creative and encouraging others also helps my creativity too. SO to keep my workshops separate to my commercial work I have created a new strand to my business ‘Creative Wellbeing & Artists Workshops’ with Kate Smith Designs and I’m specialising in ‘Drawing for Wellbeing’. On June the 7th I’m having my first exhibition Stand at an Arts 4 Health Event Caring Creatively Networking Day. As you may guess I’ve been busy creating a new logo and marketing material- I hope you like it?

I have lots to smile about this January, I’ve managed to meet up with  lots of dear friends, who I’ve not seen for along time. I’m planning a Arts for Health drawing project at the Quad in Derby which will be a number of workshops , I’m really excited about it. Arts for Health is an area I’ve always wished to get involved with, so there’s another ticked box on my wish list!

Just before Christmas I have started to create some more secret friends which I’m enjoying, I’m in the 2nd phase of development…. but I’m afraid I can’t say any more than that at the moment.

I have updated Minty & Monty’s Logo, see what you think, comments gratefully received.

Combesgate Beach

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Combesgate Beach is a lovely secluded beach, located at the far right-end side of Woolacombe next to Mortehoe.

We had one relaxing  ’Sunny Time’  that afternoon on this beach, whilst my husband was fighting the waves -I was either ‘splodging’ in the sea, in other words paddling in the sea in the sea, looking in rock pools, sketching, drawing in the sand and taking pictures for my blog…..building up a big appetite for  a table booked at the ‘Rockleigh’ in Mortehoe  www.rockleighhouse.com

My Husband & I chose the same from the Menu and we both had tasted  the best pudding we have ever had A little ginger pudding with brandy sauce and clotted cream! DeEliIIOcious ….Yum yum – Definately worth a visit it Rocks!!!!!
