Silver Creative Arts

Express your inner artists in a therapeutic and social setting
In this class you will learn a range of techniques to be able to create something beautiful of your own, or just experiment – even if you have never held a paintbrush!
Sessions are flexible and largely self-led, you make the decisions about what to create and how long it will take you, though instructor Michelle will be on hand to help and support you should you need it.
No preparation is necessary and if you do not have time to finish your work during the session you may take it home, or continue working on a piece over a number of weeks.

Session Structure:
Warm up
Explanation of next activity/Q&A
Idea generation and completion of painting
Show and tell

ARC’s Silver Programme is supported by a Cultural Volunteers scheme which helps participants to attend and participate in over 50s activity.  For more information and to meet our current volunteers, please click here.
