What is Artability?

Artability is a voluntary group whose purpose is to give people with a disability or other health needs, the opportunity to learn or re-learn art skills.

Art can give people the ability to express themselves, regain confidence and self-belief and develop an “I can do” mind set.

A selection of member’s comments are – “Its something I can do” - “Makes time go quickly” – “Satisfaction” – “Good rehabilitation” – “Exciting” – “Challenging” – “Relaxing” – “When people admire your paintings you feel on top of the world” – “Transported to another world”.

Art and Artability can improve people’s lives. Research reinforces what many people know instinctively that the quality of our lives comes largely from a sense of purpose, meaning and belonging.

We meet on Tuesday afternoons 2-00pm to 4-00pm and membership is £2.00 per session. We are in Bakewell at the Medway Centre.
