We already know painting is a lot of fun, but did you know it is also super beneficial to your mental health? Not only is painting relaxing and stress-reducing, it also strengthens your memory and improves your problem-solving skills (as if we needed more reason to get arty!). You can read more about the benefits here

By painting in a group, a whole new layer of benefits is added to this. Not only are you enhancing your brain function, but you are now also getting your daily fix of socialisation (stress reducing!), adding new skills to your creative toolbox AND potentially opening up networking opportunities. If you need further convincing, this article does a pretty good job.

So that's why we are calling ALL amateur, experienced and soon-to-be artists who love painting, good company and cool spaces to join the Five Cats Art Group
