A Little Workshop of Calm for Parents of Children with SEND
Eventbrite.co.uk
9:30am - 12pm


Do you have a child with SEN and/or disability? Are you feeling anxious about your child's difficulties? Are you frustrated by the pace of change, what lies ahead or finding the right kind of support? Are you simply carrying too many burdens alone or with insufficient support? 
If so, then this workshop has been designed for you.
Revive yourself over the course of the morning with a series of lessons and activities designed to build your resilence and give you time to reflect on what, day by day, is causing you stress or distress in your life. Work towards practical solutions for day to day challenges. 


Analyse and identify your personal stress triggers 


Recognise harmful mental thought patterns 


Find your emotional energy peaks and learn how to optimise energy levels 


Understand self-care and build a menu of self-care strategies 


Take away a simple action plan to help steer your life from stress to bliss

Parentalk
Eventbrite.co.uk
10th October - 21st November


Being a parent is one of life’s greatest joys, but it is also one of its biggest  challenges. There’s hardly a mum or dad on the face of the earth who, at times, is not overawed by the task of parenting and there’s no such thing as a perfect  parent.
Parentalk is for parents of children aged up to the early teenage years, giving you the opportunity to talk about   the day-to-day challenges you face, as well as sharing the things that are going well. 
Among other things we will be able to discuss feeling inadequate as a parent; love; communication in your family; boundaries and battles; letting go etc etc.
So come along and join other imperfect parents on a Wednesday evening for coffee, homemade cakes and chat.
The course is brought to you by the Families Ministry of Holy Trinity Church Combe Down. Course co-ordinator Mrs Sharon Blair has years of experience in supporting families. She is joined by presenters Nicky Coutier and Rachel Stewart.
 Dates: All Wednesdays:
10th, 17th and 24th October and 7th, 14th and 21st November
Venue: Combe Down Primary School Hall
Time: 7.45pm
Cost: FREE!
To book complete a booking form at the school office or the church office (Church Rooms opposite the Co-op) or book here.
 
 
 
  
 
Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th December


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  26 September; 03, 10, 17, 24 ,October; 07, 14, 21, 28 November; 05 December  - 10 x 1.5 hour sessions)
