A mindful space to make creative journals and explore lots of basic art, print, crafts, making and collage.

Part of Better Connect.

Creative Journalling online for adults in North Tyneside.

You: Your Art offers a mindful space where you can make creative journals and explore lots of basic art, print, crafts, making and collage techniques online. Sessions are currently led by artist Jessica Kinnersley.

It’s part of our Better Connect programme which has a range of opportunities for carers supporting people to take time out and get creative.

‘Time for myself, space to talk about whatever was bothering me, no judgement, relaxing and getting to make new friends.’

‘It gave me a sense of purpose and a set time that was just mine to make art for me, and not for any other reason’

This programme is open to all North Tyneside residents aged 18+. Priority will be given to anyone who has a caring role.
