Inspire art enabled our citizens here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands to feel inspired and empowered by discovering and obtaining new skills in all kinds of art. What ever a clients ability we here at CPM are able to provide the necessary support without comprimising the artist and their talent or creativity. From card making, creating improvised music, movement and dance workshops, painting and and sculpting, we really do try our hands at everything here at our community centre. 
The VeraNic Art Project is a more bespoke and sohisticated group of artists here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands. The group was set up to encourage our client’s creativity and imagination through the creation of various art pieces. These range from paintings, sketches, 3D sculptures and many more. The group is led by our amazing art tutor Mark Jenkins, a freelance artist, who encourages all of our clients to express themselves, through art, in whichever way they wish. Anyone in the centre is welcome to come and join. 
We meet every Monday and Thursday. 
Please take some time to look at our current artists. Each artist has their own web page displaying some of their collections.
