The Power of Plants
with Jane Hayes Greenwood
City & Guilds of London Art School
Sat 26 Oct 10am -1pm
City & Guilds of London Art School is excited to be taking part in the Big Draw 2019. This year’s theme is ‘Wellbeing and Creativity’ and as part of the festival City & Guilds of London Art School Fine Art Tutor and Artist Jane Hayes Greenwood will run 'Power of Plants' a charcoal drawing workshop focussing on the benefits of creativity and nature. The Art School invites participants to bring along their favourite house plant, take some time out to focus on the patterns and forms in nature and learn how to draw with charcoal.

Even a brief amount of time spent on a creative pastime has powerful benefits for personal wellbeing, according to new research commissioned by BBC Arts. An online survey of almost 50,000 people across the UK found that taking part in creative activities helps people manage stress, face up to challenges and explore solutions to problems in their lives.

And according to the Royal Horticultural Society ‘Indoor plants offer two main groups of benefits for us: improved psychological (mental) well-being and physical human health (i.e. it supports fitness and general health).’
The psychological benefits of indoor plants have been shown to include improved mood, reduced stress, increased productivity and attention span. The physical health benefits include better air quality, reduced blood pressure and fatigue.

All levels of experience welcome.
