RawArt is a collaboration between Charnwood Arts, the NHS . It runs every Tuesday from 1pm-3.30pm Adults with long term mental health illness are welcome. The sessions are free to attend although we do ask for a contribution of 50p towards refreshments. Occasionally we will buy in an activity and ask that you contribute whatever you can towards that.

The group works with a member of staff ,artist. or another group member each week to learn new skills in a creative environment.
