Our Venues

Join us at any of our venues:

Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cirencester, Dursley, Gloucester, Forest of Dean...



Art is a great way to help us relax, use existing skills and learn new ones as well as improving self-esteem and confidence. It is also a great way of self expression and putting how we feel on canvas or paper.

Through the art groups you will have the opportunity to explore different styles of art, experiment and produce various types of drawing. 

You will also have the opportunity to exhibit your work at different events and venues throughout the county with the option to sell your pictures.

Art can be a fantastic discussion point for helping to break down stigma and barriers to mental health.

Whether you are a novice or an accomplished artist there is something for you.  So why not try out one of our art groups-you may well be surprised at the talent you have.
