This October half term, the National Marine Aquarium are recognising the powerful impact the Arts have on a person’s wellbeing. Our wellbeing is vital to our health, our effectiveness at work and in our social lives. Art is based on feeling and can raise the spirits and uplift an individual’s mood. Our researchers here have also found that people who spend time in aquariums can improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
The National Marine Aquarium is the perfect setting to relax, unwind and have a go at being an artist. Nature’s changing colours, shapes and patterns are a constant source of inspiration for artists and photographers. This October Half Term we are challenging our you to capture the amazing ocean world through art and photography.
