During lockdown, whilst the Art Rooms is unable to welcome the public into our physical space, we are providing online content and a virtual space to continue links within our creative community. If you have limited or no internet access, you can also collect a printed pack version of the programme from our friends at Precision Imaging, 4 High St, Kings Heath; just down the road from ARKH.
We will provide step-by-step guides to different motivational creative projects that can be either be completed as one-off projects or as part of the full 12-week programme. This is a safe space for creative thinking to build a fun and expressive personal journal for each participant building self-confidence, well-being and self-expression.
These sessions will be held every Wednesday at 5pm. If you wish to take part in the weekly sessions, please email us and the Zoom link will be sent to you in advance of the meeting.
If you need to work offline Project Packs are available from Precision Imaging on the High Street.
Kirstie Lewis will be delivering the programme of creative projects, along with some special guests, over 12 weeks and you are invited to participate in the full programme; or dip in and out as you wish.
