Portals: Exploring Changes - a project from Place2Be's Art Room

Place2Be's Art Room have teamed up with Place2Be Champion Ricky Martin (CBBC's Art Ninja) on this new project to support children going through changes in their lives. 

This project supports children to reflect on their experience of going through changes and can be used specifically with children who are transitioning from one school year to the next.

The creative activity offers children space to explore their thoughts and feelings about change and aims to encourage their sense of confidence and resilience in the process.

Place2Be Champion Ricky Martin has recorded a series of videos to guide children and their parents through the project. Watch below as Ricky introduces this project, and watch more videos from Ricky on our YouTube channel.


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 support and enhance children and young people’s wellbeing.
