Our marvellous Creative Arts Group
Come along to our creative sessions at Exeter Phoenix Centre, Gandy St, Exeter EX4 3LS – see our Meeting dates for Spring 2020
You don’t need any artistic skills, just a willingness to have a go and enjoy yourself.
In our creative sessions use a variety different mediums such as felt, print, collage and painting and no prior knowledge is needed. (It’s great way to build up your hand skills too). We love to try new things like Drama too. Just give it a try!
Creative Art Exhibitions
Our second art exhibition, “Say without Words” was a tremendous success featuring our collaborative work, “Life Jacket”. It successfully portrays the hidden difficulties of aphasia in a single piece of work and we plan for it to tour around Devon – it’s already been with the Stroke Association to a Stroke Conference in Cornwall. Watch this space for more details about the exhibition!
We were also delighted with our first art exhibition with Magic Carpet held in March 2019 at the Phoenix Art Centre. Our celebration event was opened with the marvellous local artist, Ray Balkwill.
