Engaging in creative arts has been shown to provide a broad range of health benefits, including improved motivation, increased social engagement and enhanced self confidence. North Tyneside Art Studio offers a safe, non-judgemental environment where people can explore their creativity at their own pace, to help improve and sustain good mental health as part of a friendly and welcoming community.
The studio is open from 9:30am to 4:30pm on Monday to Friday, with some evening and weekend opening. People who have been referred to us can access the studio at any time during these hours, as often as they need to. Access to the studio is free of charge, with basic painting, drawing and ceramic materials provided and staff on hand to give guidance and support to start your creative journey.

Our programme changes, offering choice and the opportunity to try new things, this has included painting, life drawing, print-making, pottery / ceramics, stained glass, creative writing, puppet making, wood carving… and much more.
