Art Class at St Catherine's College

Many people are doubtful that if they aren’t good at something, there is no point doing it. This can be because they believe there will be no intrinsic benefit.

St Catherine’s College actively tries to wipe out this misconception. In fact, there are many hidden benefits to activities that simply look fun on the outside.

Art class is an enjoyable time that any resident can take part in.

Students may think they don’t have the time for light classes like this… but setting aside time to practice art, is known to boost drive and focus, as well as enabling you to plan ahead and resist impulses. It can help you achieve your goals.

Held by Cultural Officer Ella Forkin, the session is a free, casual and pleasurable distraction from the strain of university, where you can let your imagination flow and also spend time with new people. The atmosphere is very positive and a great place to spend your afternoon.

Activities like painting, drawing, and making things, are relaxing and rewarding hobbies that can lower your stress levels and leave you feeling mentally clear and calm. Creating art can also train your brain to concentrate more on details and pay attention to the environment around you.

So, bring your glue sticks and scissors and come join us in the ME Wood room for some creativity and conversation, every Friday from 2-4pm!
