Suddenly, in these strange times, doing something creative seems more important than ever!
Doing something creative is a brilliant way to relax, reduce stress, and to pause for a bit and switch our brains off from all the noise and thinking – something we are naturally all doing a lot of at the moment given the current news.
Someone was telling me the other day that stress is not good for our immune systems, and anything that we can do to feel calmer right now is a good thing. Plus creativity is a really basic human need – a great way to express ourselves and provide a form of release.
I will most certainly be getting stuck into making art on a regular basis over the coming months as a way to cope with it all. And I would really encourage you to in any way that you are able to – whether that is art, craft, music, dance, singing, baking or anything else.
But of course, another basic human need is connection – and I think that is what is going to be hard for a lot of us over the next few months. It is a very large part of the reason we go to art classes – to be together as part of a group brings so many extra benefits including inspiration, support, encouragement, motivation and friendship.
As with a lot of businesses and schools, I’m unable to run my art classes in my studio for the time being, although I plan to be here ready to throw open my doors as soon as we are allowed again! However, if you would love to get creative over the coming months I’ve introduced some new ways of supporting you with your art and providing virtual spaces for us all to come together for this.
