Our Art Cafe is open on Tuesdays 3-4pm.
Everyone is welcome - you don't need to be good at art! It's a free session and all materials are provided.
No need to book - you can just come along and give it a go.
Art Therapy At Living Well
Our art therapy groups offer a safe space for members to express and explore their feelings using the art materials provided under the guidance of the art therapist. Our groups are ideal for those struggling with mental health or emotional issues who perhaps sometimes find it hard to put into words how they are feeling, but would like to feel heard and supported by others. We take referrals from agencies and charities such as OXLEAS and Sydenham Garden, but individuals are welcome to self- refer as well. These groups are funded by the National Lottery so there is no upfront cost to members, and you also don’t have to be good at art, just willing to have a go.
"It gives you a way of expressing your feelings without having to talk about them."
Art For Wellbeing Crystal Palace Park Group
This is a group for those who want to improve their wellbeing through creativity and being out in nature, and being with others, but who perhaps don’t want to reflect on their own particular problems or issues. We have a wide variety of people who want to join us, some referred to us as above but others contacting us directly for a place. Funded by the National Lottery , there is no upfront cost to participants. You also do not need to be ‘good at art’ to join in.
