Explore your creativity and enhance your well-being by participating in one of the Nepean Creative Arts Centre’s many Artswell workshops to reduce stress, lift spirits and effect healing. The artistic workshops offer a unique opportunity to develop your sense of well-being and provide a positive, supportive environment through artistic experiences. No artistic experience is required. Founded on the belief that the arts are essential to a positive quality of life, Artswell is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and well being of individuals and communities by promoting health through the arts.
Artswell workshops offer an improvisational, playful, process-oriented environment to develop your sense of well-being by finding your creative source. Participate in one or a series of personal, creative journeys with Artswell Creativity and Wellness Workshops:
Visual Journaling for Health - Keeping a visual journal is an expressive process that can aid in self-discovery or healing emotional and physical trauma. Combine words and images to record experiences, feelings, and reactions through painting, drawing and collage.
Let it Rain Music and Painting - A unique experience of musical improvisation and painting, with particular emphasis on the benefits to patients with dementia or adults with learning disabilities. Participants will explore their creativity using umbrellas, paintbrushes, drums, and more.
Making Mandalas - The circle - a mandala - is a universal symbol of interconnection, balance, and transformation. Making a mandala is a tool for healing, creative expressions and personal growth. Choose from a variety of materials, relax, and find your pathway to feeling better.
My Memoirs - Do you have a story to tell? The process of writing down memories, thoughts, and feelings helps unload them from our subconscious, releasing stresses as we go.
Paint it Through - A playful, improvisational, process-oriented workshop to revitalize your approach to challenges. Paint without fear in a supportive environment to reduce stress levels and learn fresh coping skills.
Painting from the Centre - A unique opportunity to experience the joy of painting from and for the soul. Designed to explore your creative source, for powerful insights and lasting affirmations.
