Join our Art in Health to explore different artistic techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment!
This event will provide students with an opportunity to learn how to sketch using different art techniques, such as “contouring”, which involves sketching the outline of an object. The goal is to facilitate a creative process that allows students to self-explore and de-stress while learning a new art technique.
