My name is Jo Hodges and I am the founder of A Heart 4 Art, a creative initiative which provides bespoke art and craft sessions that give not only pleasure and enjoyment to vulnerable people, but that helps provide independence and empowerment, positively impacting health and well-being.
I am a qualified teacher and hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Therapeutic Arts with a background in the arts, graduating with a BA (Hons) in Textiles. I bring the knowledge and skills I have gained from these experiences into my sessions in a variety of ways.
I am passionate about creating accessible art for everyone and personally
understand its benefits. Creativity is applied to our daily lives in a huge variety
of ways without us realising, presenting opportunities to discover new talents
and skills and revisit previous ones.
