An Introduction to Portrait Therapy with Susan Carr
Thursday 20 July, 7.30-8.30pm
Booking essential

Artist Susan Carr used her recent PhD to explore portrait therapy – a way of using art to resolve disrupted identities in patients living with life threatening or chronic illnesses. Carr paints portraits as a way of helping individuals retell their own stories and share them with the world.

During the exhibition a self-portrait ‘art station’ will be provided, to encourage visitors (both young and old) to draw their own self-portraits.  These will be added to a ‘wall of portraiture’ at the gallery, so come along and have a go!

A Portrait Trail activity sheet will also be available for young children, offering further learning activities & interaction with the portraits.
