about the project
Drawing for People with Aphasia is a monthly drawing workshop for people with aphasia. We are a small friendly group and very welcoming!
We mostly do observational drawing, but also printmaking, collage and painting. We also have regular trips to galleries and museums around London for drawing and inspiration.
The project started in October 2013 with a grant from the British Aphasiology Society. It started as an 8 week course in observational drawing for people with aphasia at City University.. the course was repeated as part of a masters study looking at the potential benefits for people with aphasia.
Since then we have continued to meet for monthly workshops as part of the Freespace Project at Kentish Town Health Centre.
The project is run by speech and langauge therapist and artist Cat Andrew.
The project is primarily for people with aphasia, but we also welcome people with a range of conditions such as dementia, mental health difficulties and autism.
If you are interested in being part of the group, or would just like some more information, contact Cat at or on the contact page.
In order for the project to continue we need to raise funds. Money will go towards materials and running costs. Our long-term goal is to have a trip to Paris. If you would like to make a donation you can do so on our Just Giving page here or using PayPal by clicking on the button below.
