Give a boost to your self worth, enjoy being part of a group/community, release your creativity and . . . HAVE FUN!

Yvonne has found her passion for facilitating groups through Art following years of working in Marketing and Social Care.
Yvonne worked as a volunteer in the Wexford Arts Centre, working with children in art group facilitation and later with young people who had autism. was an introduction to assisting in group facilitation with children. Over the years she has learned the need for a safe environment in which people feel free to express themselves through art and also, through her work with Jole Bartoli at Ark in Dublin the inspiration which can result through connection with nature.
Through her work in assisting with teacher’s CPD training she saw the value of collaborative work. Working together in a free and easy way demonstrated the power of art to free our minds to just be in the moment.
Believing that art can be such a lovely way to get people connected and relaxed Yvonne ran several workshops for an Alzheimer’s group who greatly profited from the experience. Yvonne has co-facilitated in clubs and arts centres over the last four years.
Yvonne believes art is a great means to help process and express feelings in a friendly, non-threatening and satisfying way. One can learn to be creative and avoid comparing one’s work with anyone else’s and so grow in appreciation of one’s own uniqueness.
