Art with Refugees
With Mary Anne Patterson
Date and Times: 10am-4pm
Monday 10 – Friday 14 July 2017
You are invited to share in my gratitude for the heart’s warmth, inspiration, generosity and gift of working artistically with Exiles, Refugees and Young Asylum Seekers seeking refuge in the UK. We will learn how to work artistically to help these courageous people find their sense of playfulness, listen to their stories and encourage their hope to find ‘home’ again in their breaking hearts. We will explore the power of sharing and exploring each other’s art and culture as a door to renewal of the Spiritual in Art.
Various art media and techniques will be used and no experience is necessary.
Mary Anne is an artist, lecturer, therapeutic arts practitioner and workshop leader in UK, Germany, Czech Republic, Israel and Russia.
