Jacqui Napier Mindful Art Therapist

Throughout my previous career as a Nurse, then British Airways Cabin Crew, I have always pursued my passion for creativity. Whether it is painting, sculpture, jewellery making and sewing. When I retired from flying myself, and a friend opened a Paint-Your-Own-Pottery Cafe in Biot. I then continued with mobile pottery parties and Workshops. In 2016 I relocated to Portugal for 2 years. There I worked as a volunteer with Projecto 
Arte which is a charity that offers Art therapy to disadvantaged children in schools and youth clubs. This really spiked my interest in Art therapy and I went on to take courses at Goldsmiths and the British Association of Art Therapists in London as well as Metafora school of Art in Barcelona.  I have learnt just how powerful creativity is to all of us. My aim now is to bring art to everyone. Especially those who think they can’t draw/paint or are intimidated by regular art classes. I will be offering a series of short courses in small groups. Starting with Mindful Art sessions, which is very varied and free. Later I will be doing courses on beginners drawing techniques, pottery and painting.
