Now art comes as a remedy and aid to GPs.

Doctors have a reputation to disagree with any other form of treatment. But to a benefit of all GPs in Scotland are recommending art classes to have a better life//.

A resident artist much like resident doctors has been appointed at the GP practice in Scotland. The lady in question is Susan Grant, a graduate of the Edinburgh School of Art.

A whooping £20,225 in funds is coming by the Scottish Arts Council.

It is one of 27 projects across Scotland awarded a total of £750,000 to support the council's Partners artists-in-residence programme.

This resident artist works on the inner self of the patients.

She aims at creating a better sense of well-being among the 20 patients with whom she is working. This is through the various classes she takes.

In her own words, "The idea is to involve people in creative activities and to see what the benefits are. I am also doing workshops in digital photography and creative writing. But I am concentrating, as much as anything else, on helping people to have fun and building up their confidence. The GPs at the practice have identified people who have conditions that are caused or aggravated by stress, such as irritable bowel syndrome and migraine. But people going through transition stages in life, such as teenagers and women going through the menopause, have also been referred to me, as well as cancer patients in palliative care. The classes ... are experimental, but they may well have therapeutic benefits."

Putting a point across Dr James Beattie, a senior partner at the practice says that these classes are not meant to treat disease or viruses but cleanse the inner self.

These practices could, he said, increase "thresholds of tolerance to the various things that have been causing them distress".
