ARTSPACE @ HOME

We have developed ART SPACE @ HOME so you and your little one can engage with art and be inspired to create.

Creativity and sustainably is key with the materials used for all our online ARTSPACE projects. We have tried to create projects that can be made out of things most households would have in their cupboards or recycling bins.

Each week we will feature a simple art making activity with an extension for older children to build their skills and understanding. See our ONLINE ACTIVITIES page.
