OSCA is the Open School of Creative Arts and Well being.
OSCA provides and promotes creative art activities, that aim to improve health and well being. Our ethos is based around creating safe spaces (physical or online) for people of all ages to create, and in doing so, to learn or develop new skills, to engage with self expression, to feel a sense of achievement, and to improve general well being.
OSCA aims to offer a range of local and online creative courses, classes and camps, parties, school services, and much more in the pipeline. OSCA also has a small online shop with carefully curated art supplies and art books. We also hope to provide opportunities for exhibiting work, networking and membership in the future.
