START WITH ART - supporting creativity in residential houses
From 30 March 2020 START WITH ART is moving online.
We are developing online workshops and preparing packs to offer fun, sociable and
creative opportunities during this strange time.
For the past three years Articulate Associate Artist, Jenny Hunter has supported creative learning activity in residential houses for care experienced young people in order to increase their skills in the arts and improve their wider life choices and chances by exploring their innate creativity.
Start with Art provides:
arts and craft materials
staff training and ongoing support
creative worksheets and ideas that are simple and effective to achieve with staff support
stimulating workshops from well-known artists and crafts people across Scotland
imaginative twists on traditional creative themes
downloadable fresh and creative ideas for participatory arts activity.
If you'd like to more about the project, how to join in or connect your unit
or group to Start with Art, just get in touch.
The project was originally developed with our Young Advisors and Arts in the City.
We are grateful to the Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust, WM Mann Foundation and The Stafford Trust
for their support of the 2020 residency.
