EMPOWERING CHILDREN TO OVERCOME BARRIERS TO ACHIEVEMENT

Expressive Art for Parents

Adults need art too! As parents, it is easy to lose track of our own wellbeing. That is why Ultimate Transformations is running an Expressive Art for Parents group! Our focus in the art making in this group will be on visual art. You will learn some new skills, or develop your existing skills – but more importantly, you will explore, express, and relieve tension – in the company of like-minded adults.

Believe it or not making art for your own enjoyment actually has its benefits to both your mind and body.

We often spend our weeks rushing around focusing on our everyday commitments whether it’s your job, looking after kids, school or ticking off daily errands and we never really get the chance to relax.

When you’re overwhelmed with the stresses of a busy lifestyle, embracing your creativity can actually reduce anxieties and stresses to clear your mind.

Art in any form can be therapeutic. Here are three reasons why:

1. Helps you to slow down – During the week we’re all on the go and so being a little creative whether it’s drawing, colouring, painting or snapping a photo with your camera actually helps you to physically and mentally slow down.

2. Get to know a side of yourself you don’t usually embrace – Getting inky and involved in art, you may surprise yourself with the things you create, and through that feel a sense of achievement.

3. Self-expression and letting out your emotions – Much like music and drama making art in whichever form, helps you to express a side of yourself you might find hard to do otherwise. Like musicians who infuse emotion into the music they write, you can place emotions into the art pieces you make. In turn, this helps you to acknowledge your inner feelings and let out things you might not find the words to say.

We at Ultimate Transformations firmly believe that adults need art too! We offer this unique group session for parents of school-aged children, no matter what previous experience you have with visual art.
