Each month I host an art workshop on Patreon where I share a theme or prompt phrase for the members and you can create (and share, if you like) an artwork based on that prompt during the month.

Making art is good for you

Art can build your resiliency and improve well-being. It can help you see things in new ways, to gain a new perspective. You can learn to defeat obstacles in creative ways.

Creating art reduces your stress hormones, making you feel more relaxed, less anxious and generally less stressed. It activates the reward center of your brain, increases your focus and helps you to navigate and solve problems of the now and the future. Art boosts your confidence and can even help your body to heal. It rewires your brain.

In order to reap the benefits of art habit you don't have to be a highly skilled artist or understand art deeply. It's just a matter of getting started.

Get started
