LifewithArt believe that art and the creative process play an important role in enriching lives, reducing isolation, nurturing self-esteem and encouraging inclusion.

paper and colours. I am pleased with how it looks finished
and I'm going to put it on my bedroom wall.

As a group we had the most wonderful time. Our art skills

were used and we felt we made fantastic progress. We are
all excited about coming again next week.
It's so accommodating, I can't believe it's free! The

resources are perfect for our ladies. The art teachers are
very nice and welcoming.
You know when a group’s doing well when you see its’ members totally focussed. Without any shadow of a doubt this can most certainly be said of the LifewithArt sessions.Art Shape, Gloucester
I have enjoyed making a giant robot. It might be
Jake, Manor Green College, Crawley
to fit in the room when we put the legs on!

usually communicate verbally & usually finds it difficult to
interact and join in with activities but this was perfect for
him. He was a myriad of smiles and laughs. Great workshop.
Thank you all.
