Get Drawing Butterflies: Art for Wellbeing Workshop
January 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
Join in with this mindful art session where you will have the freedom and support to unwind and to get creative in a series of guided drawing activities with artist Pui Lee.
As a warm-up exercise, you will get the opportunity to practice mark-making, before turning a simple scribble into something beautiful using line, colour and creativity! Get inspired by some of the most beautiful visitors to our garden and green spaces – Pui Lee will guide us to draw a butterfly or two. She will then show you how to complete your picture by either adding tone and/or colour using the drawing tools and/or using collage possibilities.
Art is always great for relaxation, reduction of stress and above all, is good fun! This workshop is well suited for those not so confident with drawing, aiming to help get you started with some creative ideas and techniques to try out. You will end up with some drawings that you can continue with at your own leisure if you don’t finish within the session itself.
