TAKE HEART IN ART
Join in via social media!
Take Heart in Art will provide fun, therapeutic and engaging art workshops on our online platforms. We will also have an Artist in Residence working in Pendle and inspiring the community. Artist Sue Ripley, from Yorkshire, will deliver a variety of face to face and online workshops including: textile monoprinting, transfer printing, shibori and creating your own brushes for exciting mark making. The face to face workshops will be with families and children from the area of Pendle. We have adapted new ways of working and have created a COVID Secure environment for our community and artist to work in.
We also have an artist from Manchester - Wil Judkins who’s specialism is illustration. Wil will be inspiring the community online by producing art work for the community to respond to and enjoy in these dark times.
These sessions will give participants the chance to escape from the disruption and stress of their situations.
People are often able to express in their artwork what they can’t express in words and inevitably all of this will improve communication and alleviate the suffering caused by this pandemic.
Take Heart in Art will reinforce the sense of shared experiences and provide an opportunity to understand and empathise with others. Communities have had to adapt to a life of separation. People who already suffer from mental health issues will additionally be struggling with the effects of isolation and loneliness.
It is now more important than ever to present our community with a project that will bring back a sense of togetherness, joy and comfort through art.
