The exhibition Expressions of Life includes a variety of mediums. These include paintings, drawings, Ceramics, knitting and crochet.
The nature of the classes involves the exploration of these mediums through the process of creation within a therapeutic environment. It allows people a voice, and to develop their own individual personal growth. The aim is not ultimately to achieve a finished piece but one’s involvement in the process of art making.
These classes came about as a result of the need to foster friendships with like-minded people going through a similar experience and to promote freedom of expressions. The name expressions of Life came about from the reason people participate in the classes. Purple House Support have created a warm and nurturing environment that allow People to explore ways of creativity for relaxation and expression through a non-verbal way.
