Art project offering a positive focus

We are delighted to have helped Oakleaf Enterprise in Guildford with a grant of £500 to purchase consumable supplies for their art project for adults suffering mental ill-health.

The art project is part of their programme of social activities, which has proved extremely popular. Each week they welcome up to 20 people for art sessions of three hours duration, led by an outstanding tutor, who not only is qualified and experienced in teaching art but also has a sound understanding of mental ill-health and the therapeutic benefits which art can bring. Participants say that the art training has increased their confidence to meet new people and massively increased their sense of achievement and self-esteem.
