Drawing for People with Aphasia

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many events listed on this website are likely to be cancelled. Please contact specific event organisers for up to date information on whether or not the event will go ahead.

The Free Space Project offers free monthly sessions for people with aphasia who can’t draw and who have always wanted to learn. It is also for those who used to draw but don’t anymore. It also for those that do draw but want to explore further. The group is also open to people with other neurological difficulties/mental health difficulties, e.g. dementia or depression.

Observational drawing can help self-esteem and confidence, thinking and memory, social skills and pleasure in life.

Their facilitator Catriona Andrew also hopes it will help language. But most of all that people will learn a new skill in a friendly atmosphere and it will be fun!
