All you need is Art…

Art and being creative has many health benefits – it allows us to focus on something positive and escape temporarily. Art also lowers stress and activates our brain’s reward centre. You don’t have to be a trained artist to give it a go. There are many articles, videos and podcasts in the ‘Backstage’ section to help you get started. If you are already a budding artist or a seasoned professional why not upload your artwork and inspire others….after all, what is art without an audience?
