Explore + Create

This year for Children’s Art Week, we are taking inspiration from the natural world. Artist Karen has put together a series of activities which encourage looking, experimentation and play. There is a short film to accompany each activity and downloadable activity packs include Makaton signs and symbols to increase access.

Shadow Drawing

I have really enjoyed creating these inclusive activities and hope that lots of children get involved. I have children of my own and understand how frustrating lockdown can be. Creativity is a brilliant way of engaging children and can really improve their health, wellbeing and happiness.
