Arts Home Learning Ideas: Week 5

Keep busy with these creative gems

First Site have worked with UK artists to put together a creative activity pack, Art Is Where the Home Is.   They launched their first pack a few weeks ago.  Over the weekend, they shared their second pack, with contributions from different artists, involving lots of different, fun things to do at home.   Both packs are free to download and all of the activities are accessible and don’t require specialist materials.

Watch the Leeds Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah  production The Vulture’s Song (suitable for children aged 9+) and have a go at some of the follow up family or school activities.

Take part in free online dance classes from RJC Dance (children’s classes are at Tuesdays 11 – 11.30 and Saturdays 10 – 10.30). They can be viewed live via Facebook or watched at a time to suit you via their YouTube Channel.

For aspiring engineers, the James Dyson Foundation have put together Challenge Cards with a series of challenges that involve creativity and can be undertaken in the home (some require adult supervision).

Practise storytelling and have a go at making a miniature book for your toys or follow Woodrow Phoenix’s guide to creating your own comic strip.
