Coastal Creative: Take Off

Fortnightly on Tuesday's from 2pm-4pm

A free course aimed at those who face mental health difficulties and isolation- to attend please contact

About Take Off:

Take Off provides ready-made social networks and also provide other peer support services as needed. When a need is identified, we will endeavour to design, develop and deliver a service to fill that void. We have a large group of sessional workers spread across East Kent. We believe peer support is a significant part of our recovery process and therefore has an economic value.

Time for Art


Would you like to learn how to paint & draw?
​Jacqui has over twenty-five years’ experience of drawing and painting, seven of which was within an art college environment.
​I would like to offer my experiences of how one can produce drawings and paintings. ​To me, art is not about pretty pictures or precisely measured drawings, it is about having the ability and confidence to produce art which express our individual personalities.
 The course is designed from experience, it is as difficult as you make it, or as enjoyable as a new lasting joy that you can add to your interests. ​During the course, we will experience different disciplines, different colours, materials and ways in which we can learn by every drawing, keeping us enthusiastic determined and confident. ​Hopefully you won’t be afraid to make mistakes because those made are part of the learning process, the negative turned into a positive approach. ​The main aim of the course is to have fun, to enjoy what you are achieving and to make the most of the time given, to learn with like-minded people. 


​Contact Jacqueline on 07751 22 11 50 to receive a detailed description of the course.
