The Start Studio
Online Family Art Sessions
I was commissioned to deliver weekly art and craft sessions for families with primary aged children during lockdown. The sessions ran for 7 months during the pandemic disruption, providing an opportunity for children to express themselves, explore new ideas and to connect with other children in a safe way. This project was supported by Arts Council England.
Facebook Live Creativity for Resilience
During the 3rd lockdown period I was asked to deliver Facebook Live sessions alongside a range of other creative professionals to help children to use creativity as a means of increasing resilience. Utilizing materials found around the home, I demonstrated 8 different sensory activities over two months, providing additional guidance alongside the live sessions to support participants. This project was supported by Middlesbrough Council's Cultural Recovery Fund.
