We LOVE process art activities here at ARTventurers. This is where we concentrate on the process of actually creating art, rather than the final outcome. Process art is so fun, completely individual and not one masterpiece looks the same.
During our time spent socially distancing, I am going to put myself to good use and show you some process art activities you can do at home.
Activity number 1 is skateboard painting. I have used lining paper but wallpaper or wrapping paper works just as well. A scooter or baby walker could be used if you don’t have a skateboard. Whatever you have to hand, just use your imagination!
January 2020 will see the launch of intergenerational classes in South Tyneside.
We are collaborating with Hillcare at Willow Dene Care Home in Hebburn and bringing our ARTventurers fun to their residents.
Children and residents will work together and benefit from the advantages that art and creative play brings. There is a lot of research to suggest that intergenerational work helps to support positive mental health for older people who can otherwise feel a little lonely. It also helps children’s social, emotional and physical development and wellbeing.
To launch the classes we are hosting an intergenerational Christmas party on 19th December. Children will take home their little creations and keepsakes and everyone will leave with the beautiful memories the session helps to create.
