The Art Room at home

 

The charity Place2Be believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience and connect with others. Their Art Room team are specialists in using art to support and enhance children and young people’s wellbeing. During the lockdown period, the team created a series of free projects for primary aged children to make at home or school together with parents, carers or teachers.

The creative projects can help adults and children to nurture their relationship whilst having fun making art together. Each project offers space to explore an engaging theme through stories, art and conversation. The activities provided can be adapted to a range of settings with children of different abilities and ages.

The aim of these projects is to encourage children to create something they want to make. We hope their creativity can be celebrated and social and emotional wellbeing strengthened through this process.
