Penumbra Centre

This is a story from one of our member's in her own words about art and health matters.

Penumbra is a safe supportive enviroment for my pursuit of artistic creations. Art has a major influence on my mental health asit brings purpose to my life and at Penumbra I can expand my learning from supportive worker, volunteers and member's. I also feel less isolated being in a social creative group enviroment which helps my emotional challenges. Attending weekly puts routine and structure into my life, Penumbra is a place where I can be myself, being creative draws my mind away from negatives in life, it searches my soul for what really matters and it soothes the anxieties I feel. Colours and strokes become a healing tool and music to my heart. I become hole. Writer Monica Ross.
