Art sessions

Alive art sessions enable older people to unleash their creative side

We provide art supplies such as acrylics, watercolours, pastels and mixed media which are suitable for people of all abilities and enable everyone to take part.

Our art facilitators vary the theme of each session, ensuring that there is something for everyone to enjoy and can tailor the session to the interests and life stories of each participant.  All the art equipment is supplied, plus our facilitators bring in objects to draw from life and music to accompany the session.


The content of the sessions can include: 

  • Painting techniques
  • Looking at work by famous artists
  • Music and poetry
  • Personal projects based on lifestories, the natural world or seasons
