Digital Parents With Paintbrushes


Learn new skills and expand your creative growth! Art boosts self-esteem and provides a sense of accomplishment. Art reduces Mental-health issues and stress or high anxiety 

If you, or if someone you know, have been struggling with mental health and/or would like to join other parents to explore new growth and creativity, then come along and join us for some fun! 


Parents with Paintbrushes project is made up of 5 sessions and is suited to beginner and intermediate levels.

It is an art class with a difference. Not only will parents develop art skills and techniques with art tutors and facilitators, but the project will also explore using art as a therapeutic tool to reduce anxiety and stress for parents with additional caring responsibilities.

These sessions are exclusively for parents with school-aged children with special educational needs- such as; autism spectrum conditions (ASC), attention deficit disorders (ADD/ADHD), or a social communication disorder. Your child does not need to have a formal diagnosis but must be on the pathway to assessment.
