Art is good for you!

Art is good for you.
In Dulwich, S.E. London, local GPs are prescribing art for some of their elderly patients.
Dulwich Picture Gallery have a community outreach programme which involves the elderly in gallery visits and art classes.

Taking a weekend workshop that attracts you is lovely way to spend a whole day on art - and you could come home with a picture like this :
