    Join us on Friday afternoons to explore the art of drawing and mark-making as a form of mindfulness. Each session will focus on a different creative technique that we can use to create beautiful art. But if you would just like to sit and colour while sipping some hot chocolate or herbal tea, then please do!

    All skill levels are welcome!
    All materials and refreshments will be provided for participants.
