Painting A More Positive Future
Wednesday 14th October – 11:00 am – 12:30 pm Via Zoom
2020 has been a tough year across the board. One area of life we need to keep an eye on during difficult times is keeping our mental health in check. Join us for this interesting look into how creativity and arts can support positive mental health. We are delighted to welcome art therapy experts:
Catherine Rogers – Artist & Art Therapist – Cut Out Collage
Catherine is a qualified artist and art therapist who provides a therapeutic space to create a collage. Catherine has delivered workshops for the NHS, Prisons, and Private Health Care, as well as individual workshops. She is a trained Art Psychotherapist. Catherine will speak for about 20 mins about her journey, how and why she became an art therapist and the impact this has had on people’s lives.
Cheryl Joyce – Fluid Art Therapist Sean’s Place
Cheryl is an artist from Liverpool who specialises in paint pouring, also known as Fluid Art. She runs acrylic paint pouring sessions at a local men’s mental health charity, Sean’s Place, and is taking steps to set up a social enterprise that will create jobs for people on the autistic spectrum.
After searching for an easy art method to teach autistic people as part of a new business idea, Cheryl discovered paint pouring and found this was having a positive impact on her own mental health. A long-term sufferer of anxiety and depression triggered by chronic stress, Cheryl found watching the paint moving around the canvas deeply calming. Her goal is to help people find a way to switch off from the stresses of everyday life.
‘Change It: Renew’ a programme of support to help women across the Liverpool City Region to improve their resilience, coping mechanisms, and mental wellbeing.
