Community cohesion

‘Combatting issues of fragmentation and isolation in families and communities, shared, hands-on creative making can assist in buidling bridges, strengthening relationships and increasing confidence and wellbeing.’ Sara

What we do

Groups are encouraged to get involved in creating a giant collaborative painting. Playfully experimenting with a range of art materials, everyone has the opportunity to freely express themselves in drawing and painting. Working on a large expanse of paper with pots of brightly coloured paint, large brushes and coloured pastels, we end with a fabulous piece of art – a positive reminder of shared fun and achievement.

Who for

Community groups – intergenerational, families, the marginalised and hard-to-reach


With you wherever you are or at Arts Lab, Dartington
