Creative Teens Lab (ages 12–17 years)

Online Teens Lab: Be Happy, Stay Healthy – Art and Anxiety

Be Happy, Stay Healthy 

Well-being relates to all aspects of our lives. It includes our thoughts and feelings, how our bodies feel as well as our relationships at home, at school and when we are out with friends or meeting new people. Join art therapist Andrea Plunkett for one, or all, of our ‘Be Happy, Stay Healthy’ workshops and learn how to deal with expectations, stress and the world around you. 

Workshop I: Art and Anxiety 

This workshop will focus on combating anxiety with art. Andrea will talk about the benefits of being creative in everyday life and how you can use art to reduce the build-up of stress, negative thoughts and feelings. 

This event will now be held online. You will receive the link to zoom the day before the workshop. 

Materials: Basic colouring or drawing pencils & paper, items from the home such as recycled materials; pictures from old magazines, flyers, newspapers and organic materials like leaves or twigs 

Optional: Paint or clay, digital art software
