Group Workshops are designed to teach new art and craft skills, offer team bonding exercises, provide a creative outlet and activate public spaces.
The workshops are delivered in the Level 3 Atrium of the RPA main building, where the natural light provides an open and inviting studio-like art space.
Group workshops are offered to RPA inpatient and outpatient groups and family and friends, as well as clinical and administrative staff.
Workshops of up to 30 people can be delivered in the Level 3 Atrium space. They are designed with a specific project outcome in mind. All materials are provided and the outcomes can be installed as a collaborative team work, or kept by the individual participants.
Workshops offered in other locations by request.
