The Open art class, administered by Belconnen Community Services, is designed to support and promote good mental health in the community.
The Open Art Program is inclusive and is open to people who have good mental health as well as those experiencing mental health issues. Running integrated classes helps to educate the community, reduce isolation and break down stigmas around mental health.
Through funding from the ACT Health Directorate, the program is able to employ expert art tutors who hold classes in Belconnen, Watson and Tuggeranong. At a studio in the City we run the award winning Open Art ‘Outreach’ program which provides an arts’ based rehabilitation pathway for people experiencing enduring mental health issues. The program runs one to one and small group art therapy classes with a qualified art therapist in a friendly and supportive environment.
The Tuggeranong Open Art class is run on Thursdays from 2-4pm.
