As part of the Pathways to Wellbeing project the group is able to spend six week blocks at one of Bath Preservation Trust’s museums, at the Holburne Museum and at the American Museum & Gardens exploring the collections and creating their own artistic response. The group also gets involved in lots of different art projects and exhibitions in Bath and the local area (including Bath Fringe Arts Festival and exhibitions at Bath Artists’ Studios).
Through these weekly sessions the group aims to support people to develop their confidence and self-esteem, their social skills and relationships plus build life-skills such as time organisation, planning, team work and communication. Participation and engagement in arts opportunities both within the museum and wider arts community promotes wellbeing and self-efficacy and empowers participants.
The group is often facilitated by specialist artists who focus on teaching different skills and techniques. For further practical information about when and where the group meets please click here – information about current Pathways to Wellbing groups.
