Art & Wellbeing Workshops
This past year has taken a toll on all of us, we've experienced our fair share of challenges with the bushfires that ravaged our country and then the ongoing pandemic but there are better days ahead. Members of communities in Moss Vale, Lake Conjola, Milton and Picton have come together to meet new people and express themselves creatively at Art & Wellbeing workshops hosted by CatholicCare.
Olivia, a South Coast artist who loves to teach and inspire others to pick up a paint brush shared her skills with participants and got them exploring and uncovering their creative talents.
At the Moss Vale workshop last Tuesday afternoon participants gathered to explore their creative talents and connect with likeminded individuals.
Tina and her son Ryan, attended as a school holiday activity, "It's a great activity to do that doesn't involve screens and allows us to spend quality time together". Ryan loves studying art and school and was keen to learn new skills.
Sharlene and Chrissy, two friends from Shellharbour were keen to try something new and get out of their comfort zones. "It's also a great opportunity for selfcare, you can't look after others if you haven't first looked after yourself" said Sharlene.
The workshops were a great success and we hope to run similar workshops in the future.
