Hearty Arty is Artspace’s latest project to support people’s well-being. It uses art to encourage physical and mental fitness and explores the connection between them all. Activities are a  combination of art and fitness – but the fitness aspect will be very gentle and mainly walking – with a bit of good food included (we had a lovely picnic after our walk round Teggs Nose in September). It  includes regular walks with an artistic theme and the art sessions explore different types of artistic expression based at ArtSpace.

Expertly led gentle fitness support and exploratory art sessions, samples of food and guided local walks will be available and a counsellor will be on hand for general and specific support.

Everyone is welcome to join and we especially welcome anyone with vulnerable mental health or prone to loneliness or anxiety.

We also need people who can offer support on the walks, in the art sessions or in producing and advising on good food. If you have an empathetic ear, relevant practical skills or are just happy to muck in wherever necessary please let us know by emailing us MaccCommArtSpace@mail.com or leave a message on our answerphone 01625 440694

Come and be part of it!

Look forward to seeing you Hearty Artists!
