Rugby Art Gallery and Museum has received a grant to run a year long project linked to improving health and wellbeing for people living in social isolation and people living with dementia. The project will include weekly games and adult colouring sessions, and monthly craft and artefact workshops in the art gallery and museum. We will also be creating reminisce boxes which can be used in the building or off site. We will be running off site workshops in partnership with local charities, homes and organisations.

Join us at the Benn Partnership Centre on Thursday mornings for our fun,social, art and craft group. Each week we will explore a new technique and exciting ideas. Free tea and coffee included at the end of the session. All abilities welcome.
First Thursday of each month 1pm - 3.30pm.
ArtLab is a practical session for adult artists with the emphasis on experimentation and trying something different – an unusual media or a new technique. The usual format is for a member or visiting artist to briefly present an idea, and then for everyone to “have a go” at it and see what can be discovered. It is friendly and positive in atmosphere. ArtLab is facilitated by members of Rugby Artists’ Group, but is funded by Rugby Museum and Art Gallery and is open freely to non-members. It takes place on the first Thursday of every month 1pm to 3.30pm usually in the Education Room. Please contact ArtLab directly for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
