hope springs ONLINE ART EXHIBITION
‘Boredom Sparks Creativity’
The hope springs Online Art Exhibition was launched in style on Wednesday 30 September, attracting a large (virtual) crowd and an impressive number of entries.
The ‘art’ on display included not only paintings and drawings, but photographs, poetry, stories and even a few musical presentations.
Art Therapy student, Deb Shepherd, who curated the Exhibition says ‘Like the stars in a dark sky that shine brightly, these artworks and artists reflect the hope and resilience on display through these difficult months‘.
A few of the artworks are featured here (click on the image to see the full work), but you can see all the entries in the video below.
The programs offered at hope springs include Art Therapy, Music Therapy, a Women’s Program, a ‘Hang Out’ Program, a Carer’s Group and a group dedicated specifically to taking participants on a range of outings in the area.
All programs are based at the Cross Generation Uniting Church in Heidelberg Heights and run with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers.
Please contact us if you are interested in a program or in becoming a volunteer.
