Digital art workshops give young people the chance to get involved with the design of mental health spaces for children young people like them.
Best For You has been lucky enough to work with Anna Jane Houghton and Carlos Penalver, two of several artists creating work for the new Best For You day centre. Anna and Carlos have put together workshops so that young people can inspire and contribute to the final artwork for the space.
We’ve run four exciting workshops over Zoom, and have an in-person art workshop on 15 September 2022. You can sign up to the free in-person workshop through Eventbrite.
Anna and Carlos have also developed resources for two additional digital art workshops, so young people across the UK can get stuck in at their own time and pace.
Carlos’ workshop: drawing exercises with continuous lines and imaginative coffee stains
Anna’s workshop: combining drawing and collage techniques as an intro to the artists Ellsworth Kelly and Henri Matisse
