Event description
Join us this Autumn for the Hospital Rooms Digital Art School. Free and open to people using mental health services and the general public.

About this Event

A Digital Art School, Open to All

Hospital Rooms is a London-based arts and mental health charity that radically transforms inpatient mental health settings with contemporary art.

While our usual work in mental health units is on hold, we have joined forces with internationally acclaimed artists to lead art workshops remotely from their studios and homes.

Fostering creativity and connection through art

The artists leading these sessions have exhibited in many of the world's best galleries and have taught in some of the country's best art schools, including Royal Academy Schools, Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins. Over the coming weeks they will introduce you to their creative practice, help guide you to create your own artworks and answer questions along the way.

These workshops are for inpatient mental health units, as well as people accessing community mental health services and the wider public.

So grab a sketchbook, dust off your pencils, and get creative using #DigitalArtSchool. We can't wait!
