Art for Wellbeing: Everyday, The 'AWE' Project

ACAVA is delighted to announce the launch of a new series of Art for Wellbeing projects, funded by NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group (WLCCG).

Our new 2018 Art for Wellbeing programme, will provide the opportunity for local people to work with professional artists to learn a range of visual arts skills. Each new skill will be taught over 6 sessions at our Blechynden St Studio in W10 (close to Latimer Rd Tube Station).

Places are free for participants to attend, all we ask for in return is for your feedback. This will help us to help us create a 'how to guide' for the skill you have learnt, so other local people can try out the same activity at home with family or friends.

The first two projects in the programme are:

Photobooks with paula roush

Saturdays 11am - 2pm

February 17th & 24th, March 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th

paula roush, who teaches photobook publishing at the School of Art and Creative Industries, London South Bank University, will lead the 6 week Photobook Project. Bring your family photo album, some digital images on a CD or memory stick, or use images from your phone to create your own photobook addressing time, place, memory and a sense of history.

Mosaics with Emily Fuller

Tuesdays 10:30am - 12:30pm

April 17th & 24th, May 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd

Emily Fuller will teach you how to design and make your own mosaic. Using glass tiles you will learn how cut and shape the glass to make your design, before grouting to set the mosaic.

Please note that participants must be over 18 years old on the project start date, and registered with an NHS WLCCG GP Practice.
