Art Group at LifecraftBack to Activities
Lifecraft is a user-led organisation for adults in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who have experience of mental health difficulties. They run a weekly art group where you can get creative with a range of materials in a supportive environment. No previous experience required!
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- producing artwork is a mindful activity which can help you to relax;
- being creative can help you express yourself and discover new talents;
- you will meet new people in a friendly space, where there is no pressure to chat.
“Art is very joyful and relaxing. It helps you bring light into a dark room. I love art as it is fun and creative, but also we have a lot of laughs.”
