The Art Room at Home
The Art Room at Home
With many children not in school due to coronavirus, our specialist Art Room team have created a series of projects for primary aged children to make at home together with parents, carers, other family members, and even teachers.
At Place2Be we believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience and connect with others. Our Art Room team are specialists in using art to enhance children and young people’s wellbeing.
The Art Room at Home projects will help adults and children to make something together, and will support the wellbeing of both the child and their adults. Each project is designed to be made over the course of a week.
The aim of these projects are for you to encourage your child to create something they want to make. By supporting them on their artistic journey we hope that you can celebrate their creativity together.
Project 6: Calm
This project offers space to notice and explore feelings of worry. The four creative activities encourage children to spot, settle, soothe and share their worries so these feelings do not become overwhelming.
Project 5: Colours
This project offers the opportunity to explore colour in relation to our experiences. We can use colour to help us make sense of how we're feeling, who we are and the world we live in.
Project 4: River to Sea
This project, launched in partnership with BAFTA Kids, is a chance for children to think about their time at primary school, and the changes ahead as they ‘sail’ into secondary or high school.
Project 3: Animal Homes
This project playfully explores what makes home a comfortable, safe and fun place for your child. Animals find brilliant ways to build their homes even when the world around them is changing.
Project 2: Space
This Space project offers an opportunity to explore themes of isolation and connection. There are three activity ideas in this project - you could make one, or all three!
Project 1: Seasons
This Seasons Tree project can offer you and your child some creative respite, and is a gentle way for families to explore the theme of change.
