Artsenta helps people be creative

Participating artist Fae McKenzie, of Kaitangata, works on an abstract painting during the inaugural session of Artsenta’s relaunched Balclutha Creative Wellbeing group at the South Otago Creative Arts Centre in Balclutha yesterday.

Miss McKenzie was one of six artists taking part in the free outreach session run by the Dunedin art studio for mental health service users.

The group was previously hosted by Pact’s Balclutha Link social networking centre.

Artsenta spokeswoman Claire Warmington said the relaunched sessions were open to the whole community.

‘‘We know the creative process is really beneficial to people’s wellbeing, so we’d love Clutha locals to come and check us out,’’ she said.

The drop-in sessions take place on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, from 1pm to 2.30pm.
