Art for the heart
Art for the mind
Join us on Saturday October 1st, noon till 7pm at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, in Deer Lake Park
My Artist's Corner
MAC is a group of artists who live with mental health issues
'We find that creation of art can be deeply healing and is often a powerful force for recovery.'
We value the opportunity, in terms of space, time, and materials to create art which in turn increases self confidence, reduces isolation and helps in developing social skills. As we build supportive relationships with our peers, we find new ways to express ourselves and to forge new connections with the larger community.
