CALM

This is a quality tutor led reflective art morning available to all in the Bournemouth area.  CALM happens the first Saturday of the month from 10.00 – 12.30, October – June in the side lounge of St Clements in Boscombe, BH1 4DZ. Recommended for adults and those 16 years +, no artistic ability required. It’s a space for anyone to come and create, not necessarily for artists to congregate.

Our hope is you are able to have some leisure time away from work or other pressures of life through a led thought for the morning and exploring different art media with tutorial support. This opportunity for creative expression engaging in the arts will lead to a boost of confidence and peace in your everyday life.

The Art Leisure mornings will be led by illustrator and art tutor Jennette Slade. Refreshments provided. These are free creative art leisure mornings with the option to donate towards art materials.

For more information and/or to help us plan for numbers please contact Jennette with contact form below or go to our Facebook page for regular updates @calm.art.mornings

‘A Quiet Heart’ Art Retreat Days – Summer 2017 Series

I invite you to one or all of this summer’s series of art retreat days – ‘A Quiet Heart.’ There is so many things seeking our attention that sometimes we need to take a pause and have space to let our hearts be quiet in a positive active way. Come have time to retreat for a few hours from ‘life’ and journey into the creative (right side the brain) in order to journey towards a quiet heart.

Think of these days as a ‘spa day for your soul’ using your creative side. These art retreat days are open to everyone, no matter your skill level or background.

Reflective materials and art materials are all supplied along with tutorial support, lunch and teas/coffees. Each art retreat day starts at 10 am with coffee and finishes by 3 pm with a break for lunch (provided). Hot drinks will also be available throughout the day. Total cost for the art retreat day is £30.00. Saturday 5/8/17 is a special morning only £20.00 (no lunch).

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me (Jennette). I look forward to welcoming you and facilitating a day for you to have time to create.
