The Angolan Women Voice Association UK organise creativity days twice a week for seniors and children in the Marcus Garvey Centre, Unit 7, Howitt Building, Lenton Boulevard, NG7 2BY, Nottingham.

The senior creativity sessions are held on Thursdays at 10AM – 1PM and the children creativity sessions are run on Saturdays at 10AM – 1PM.

Activities can vary from week to week, from painting, to making candles and making marshmallow towers. This year we were gifted with amazing African designs from an artist based in Kenya called Ann Waruga.

Throughout the sessions in the first quarter of 2022, both the children and seniors have brought life to the designs by colouring. At the exhibition the children and seniors were able to speak to the artist. Seeing the creator of the designs see the interpretation of her art by the children and seniors was a joy, the artist couldn’t stop smiling.

Colouring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work.

Adult Coloring Benefits:

  • Relaxes Your Brain and Improves Brain Function
  • Induces Meditative State
  • Improves Motor Skills
  • Improves Sleep
  • Improves Focus
  • Reduces Anxiety

The act of colouring is one that presents multitudes of benefits for both children and adults. Our creativity days bring a lot of joy, and we welcome anyone to come and join us.
