Arts and Minds: Free art workshops

Arts and Minds offers free art workshops at MAA for those experiencing depression, stress or anxiety.

No experience of art is necessary. The workshops are led by a professional artist and a qualified counsellor, offering the chance to experience working with a wide range of materials and techniques, including drawing, printmaking and sculpture.
