Hi everyone!

This is a new kind of artwork for me!  One of my colleagues asked if I knew of someone who could draw her dog as a gift.  I said ‘I can try’ (never having drawn any kind of animal before!)…nothing ventured …nothing gained.  Thankfully she loved it and that lead on to drawing quite a few before the New Year.  It’s a different kind of art …not as free and easy as painting abstracts in acrylic but satisfying nonetheless!

 

Hope you enjoy them !    Mo x

Got some really nice comments from some of the groups I recently ran art/craft sessions for ….some comments include…

“ Mo has delivered many art sessions to our service users as part of our Healthier Lives residential programmes and classes. She has delivered a painting class to our “Live Life to the Full” women’s group for women who have hearing loss in Derry. The women thoroughly enjoyed it and found it really relaxing and therapeutic. Mo has also delivered craft sessions and to our cochlear support groups in Derry, Omagh and Belfast, which involved making Christmas decorations, handmade cards and some really pretty drawings. Mo is a fantastic teacher. Her manner is really friendly, warm, encouraging and patient and her teaching techniques are very visual and accessible. This is why the groups really enjoy the class and have the opportunity to fully engage and learn new skills.”

and more!!!…….

********Mo came to do some art with some of my tinnitus clients to show how enjoying basic art can be a relaxing experience and this helps to reduce stress and has a positive impact for those with tinnitus. Mo demonstrated several techniques including crazy birds and mindfulness art. The class had a great time and afterwards when asked, they concluded they had not thought about their tinnitus during the session. Mo also pointed out that you didn’t need to be good at art to have fun with it. I can recommend Mo and her art sessions not only for the fun aspect but also as Mo’s encouragement singles her out as a wonderful tutor. The evaluation forms indicate the positive experience of her art session, ‘The course provided ways of reducing stress levels and so reducing the impact of the tinnitus’. Mo’s art was one of the techniques for reducing stress.

THANK YOU…the words above make all the preparation and delivery worthwhile!! 🙂 x
