ARTSPACE@HOME

ARTSPACE@HOME (Ages 2-8)

Activities can be made out of materials most households would have in their cupboards or recycling bins.

We have developed ARTSPACE@HOME so you and your young ones can engage with art and be inspired to make art.

Creativity and sustainability is key for our online art projects. We have created activities that can be made out of materials most households would have in their cupboards or recycling bins.
