Art at Home

Our art therapist, Rose, shares her eight week programme of art activities you can do at home.

You are here: Home / How We Can Help / Art Activities At Home

Rose Verney, our interim art therapist here at Sobell House, has kindly taken the time to share with us some ways we can continue to be creative and express how we are feeling while staying in our homes. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, Rose is less able to provide face-to-face art therapy. However, she has come up with some ideas that we can all try at home to help us tap into our own creativity. Her eight session ‘Art at Home’ programme includes fun and simple art activities for everyone, regardless of what art materials you have available. Give it a try by clicking on session one below!

We hope you enjoy our Art at Home series. If you’d like to send us what you’ve created, we’d love to see it. You can message us your pictures on Facebook or Twitter or email them to us at [email protected]

In session two, let your creative side out by making animal marks with paint.

In session four, we work towards creating a folder to keep your drawings in.

About Rose

Rose is usually based in the hospice and she works with our patients using various creative techniques and talk therapy. Many people find that it can be helpful to just enjoy the possibility of using art materials, and find that in doing so they are better able to express certain thoughts, feelings, memories and ideas. You can find out more about our creative therapy services here, or contact Rose directly by email.
