At Greenacres, we believe everybody has the ability to express themselves artistically – it is just a matter of finding your perfect medium.
We have a dedicated art therapist who guides participants to discover their individual style of creative expression while improving their artistic skills.
Artistic expression can also be explored through activities like woodwork, craft, sewing, knitting, jewellery making, photography and drama.
Greenacres offers art classes as part of our Community Life and Leisure service and through drop-in art class on a Sunday called Outsider Artists. All classes are held in our dedicated art studio at 6-8 Ralph Black Drive, North Wollongong. There are two classes every Sunday, the morning class is from 10am to 1pm and the afternoon class 1.30pm to 4.30pm. You can even stay all day from 10am to 4.30pm. Week day classes are by application to the Art Therapist by contacting Greenacres.
Classes are payable through the participant’s NDIS plan with a small contribution for art materials. Carers assisting an artist are welcome to participate in the class for free.
