Take Heart in Art project provided fun, therapeutic and engaging art workshops. Our Artist in Residence Sue Ripley, from Yorkshire, delivered a variety of face to face and online workshops including: textile mono-printing, transfer printing, shibori and creating your own brushes for exciting mark making. The face to face workshops involved working with families and children from Pendle. 

 

Community Arts by ZK adapted to new ways of working and created a COVID Secure environment for our community and artist to work in.

We also had an artist from Manchester - Wil Judkins, whose specialism is illustration. Wil inspired the community online by producing art work for people to respond to and enjoy in these dark times.

Take Heart in Art reinforced a sense of shared experiences, provided an opportunity to understand and empathise with others and improved overall mental health and wellbeing. These workshops gave participants from BAME backgrounds the chance to escape from the disruption and stress of their situations and bought back a sense of togetherness, joy and comfort through art. 

 

People are often able to express in their artwork what they can’t express in words and inevitably all of this improved communication and alleviated the suffering caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
