Place2Be’s Art Room team launch project in collaboration with WWF
For their latest art project, Place2Be’s Art Room team have collaborated with the world’s leading independent conservation organisation, WWF.
After a challenging year, the ‘Growth’ project aims to help children to adjust to new circumstances, and help them thrive.
Having space to creatively express ourselves and connect with nature can enhance our wellbeing, and improve our mental health. By taking children on a journey through nature, this project provides a supportive space to think about and explore children’s feelings.
As part of the project, WWF UK’s Education and Youth Engagement team have suggested some nature based activities that children can do to further explore the theme of growth. These activities will help children, together with their parents, carers or teachers, to connect with the nature on their doorstep.
At Place2Be we believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience, build confidence and connect with others. Our Art Room team are specialists in using art to support and enhance children and young people’s wellbeing and mental health.
During the first lockdown period, the Art Room team created a series of free projects for primary aged children. These projects, which focus on key themes such as change and resilience, can be adapted for use in the classroom or at home. Learn more about the Activities from The Art Room.
