Arts on Prescription

Throughout June, the Museum’s Elliott and Son’s cafe is showcasing a collection of work from the Arts on Prescription groups of Rickmansworth, which is in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire.

Arts on Prescription

 

Since 2017, Three Rivers District Council’s leisure team have been delivering creative projects for adults living with poor mental health as part of their Arts Development Programme. The aims of the weekly sessions are to boost confidence, enable skill learning, encourage social interaction and help people to feel like they are valued and included. Increasing evidence and studies have shown that the arts have an important contribution to make to health and wellbeing; to combat stress, anxiety and other conditions.

Over 12 weeks, the group worked with artist, Anna Schofield, to explore creative collage, art journaling and abstract art techniques, the result being a unique and beautiful collection of artwork reflecting the emotional journey, personal interests and different personalities within the group.

The artwork will be on display in the Museum’s cafe until the end of June.
