Sign up for arts training and workshops

We offer in-depth training for groups and organisations who want to engage people with complex disabilities and sensory impairments in a creative environment.

We also train our support staff in collaborative art-making so that everyone feels more confident working creatively and art becomes a part of the everyday across Sense.

The collaborative art-making training delivered by Sense Arts was very good at teasing out our creativity and it was a lot of fun. It showed us that we are all creative and really opened my eyes to the importance of creativity for helping our guys to express themselves.
