Help us to be there to support mental wellbeing
We are delighted to be able to offer a series of art workshops to our service user community, here at Mind in Kingston. The workshop is run by an experienced artist and Art Therapist, and suitable for all levels of artistic ability and skills. Participants do not need previous experience of art-making, just a desire to use art activities to enhance their well-being in a safe environment. You will learn new skills, meet new people and make lots of art.
Due to the global pandemic, it is not possible to meet in a physical space. However, the art group has moved to an online platform and meets every Monday.
If you would like to join a future group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

On Tuesday 9th February, we launched a weekly art challenge to enhance the emotional wellbeing of those working, studying or living in the Royal Borough of Kingston, through art-making.
The project is open to all, but we sent out Free Art Kits worth £50 to 50 people in the borough to help them get started!
From February 9th, art themes, guidance and skills support will be shared on our social media and website each week for inspiration.
No experience or art skills are needed - having a try and joining in is what matters! Please share your art with us on social media by tagging us @mindinkingston and using the hashtag #mikartchallenge. You can also email us your art work to email@example.com if you would like your work to be featured on our Lockdown Art Exhibition website.
