Our studio is currently closed due to COVID restrictions, but we are still open for public and members-only sessions online, and are still able to accept online referrals. We urge everyone to keep themselves safe and informed and follow the advice given by the Government and NHS

During the temporary closure of our physical studio spaces, we are running public art for mental health sessions online.  You can join us live on our Facebook Page on Mondays at 2pm, or check out our library of sessions, including family friendly series Drawing Adventures, art-history inspired Drawing from the Past (in association with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums), andBeginner’s Art for Mental Health

If you are a health or social care professional that wants to refer someone to the studio, you can submit your referral online here.

North Tyneside Art Studio is a charity based in North Shields that has been using art and creative activities to improve the lives of people experiencing mental health issues since 1991.

We provide creative opportunities for as long as they’re needed, in an inspirational and accepting space, that offers escape from everyday life, builds connections with others and increases peoples resilience and confidence.
