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.

Love, Jen and ARTy Bear xx
