At Tweed Regional Gallery we’re inviting children (aged 9-12) who are experiencing mild anxiety to take part in a 7-week art program in a small group setting at weed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. A free program for their parents and caregivers will run at the same time.
The program will provide a safe, structured space for young people and their parents/carers to engage with and respond creatively to three curated artworks led by an experienced team.
The program is a study to understand the impact of an arts engagement program on improving wellbeing in primary school-aged children (aged 9-12) who experience mild anxiety. Parents/caregivers will also participate in this calming and engaging program in separate and parallel sessions.
Engagement with the arts can help young people connect to their feelings, thoughts, and imagination. It can build self-confidence and resilience, foster social connections and improve mental health and wellbeing.
If you can help to support participation in the program through your networks that will be wonderful, people can register here:
