It’s #creativityandwellbeing week, and it’s FRIYAY! How does getting creative support your health? We want to hear from you! Check out this week’s #TimeToCreate challenge and get involved. #64millionartists #friyay @londonartsinhealth Posted @withrepost • @64millionartists “No act of kindness however small is ever wasted” ❤️ Thank you Helene, we agree! #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #januarychallenge #creativity #kindness #light #magical #randomactsofkindness #community #wellbeing #bekind #mondaymotivation This #CreativityAndWellbeing Week we’re inviting you to share how creativity supports your health. Thanks @pact_creative for this AWESOME short video. It’s #TimeToCreate! @londonartsinhealth #64millionartists #5minscreativity #creative #wellbeing #community #play I took part in the @64millionartists weekly challenge this week to celebrate creativity and wellbeing week. The challenge was to make a video running less than a minute of something which contributes to your wellbeing during the week – no other rules. Now I am not a video maker or a visual artist, and I have no video software on my computer, but I do love a creative challenge – especially something to do with wellbeing! I love the imperfection of it (luckily) and I love that the process of creating something with wellbeing in mind contributed to my wellbeing too! Happy Creativity and Wellbeing Week – long may your weeks continue to be fully of...yup, creativity and wellbeing (and playfulness of course). If you want to make your own video, just tag 64millionartists and @londonartsinhealth and hashtag #timetocreate – they will post all videos tomorrow to celebrate the week – fancy trying it? Let me know how you get on.. . . . . . #creativityandwellbeingweek #timetocreate #64millionartists #networkmarch #artshealthecrn #creativityforwellbeing #playfulmindset #trusttheprocess #artsforhealth #creativityforwellbeing #funnotperfect #funisgoodforyou #beplayful #playmore #creativityandplay #playforlife Otro #dibujito #doodling #doodleoftheday #creativityandwellbeing #64millionartists #doodle like #jeanmichelbasquiat #dailydoodles #alittlesomethingeveryday #keepsthedoctoraway #creativityandwellbeing #64millionartists #creativityandwellbeingweek Get Creative !

Hooray, It’s Creativity and Wellbeing Week! Creativity and Wellbeing week is a UK wide festival from London Arts in Health Forum, celebrating and showcasing some of the incredible work going on around arts and health.

This Creativity and Wellbeing week, we challenge you to create a short video (under a minute) of something creative that supports your health and share it using #TimeToCreate.

I learnt about making collaged images using Photoshop layers - this is a creative activity using regular images and textures to create a different feel to your final picture. I was pleased with this that includes the texture of a thrown away plastic bag to create the weird atmosphere over Brighton Beach. Thank you @vivecakohphotog #nevergiveup #64millionartists #brightonbeach #westpierbrighton #photoshoplayers #olympuspenf I designed this poster in response to those who act bewildered about climate change and species annihilation as though it was some kind of mystery, when it isn't Such a beautiful letter on grief received today. So moved by all the brilliant letter writers who have shared a difficult experience to help a stranger. Sure this one will really help someone who needs it.

I create montage artwork, consisting of magazine and newspaper cuttings, plus sweet and food wrappings that I call Ransom Note Art as it is a combination of pictures and images One of my other passions was developing designs for posters and t-shirts. This one was meant to be split into two, with one piece on the front and the punchline on the back This is another hobby of mine - taking photographs of anything I see on my travels that may be particularly quirky or interesting This is a minor interest of mine, inspired by Patrick McGoohan's TV series The Prisoner. It was the idea of getting two identical sets of clothing and mixing and matching them after but I am not seamstress Of late my interest in UFOs has turned to adapting road signs into quirky artwork based on this idea I like creating science fiction type artwork, using coloured pencils
