City Arts have produced a free PDF activity booklet to download as part of their ‘Create to Connect’ project. The specially designed booklets detail art activities that people can do at home, or in a group. City Arts have created these booklets to help combat social isolation and they are designed to be used by people who have not done much art before – although they can be adapted to push skills a little further, should you wish to. Click here to download the booklet or read on to find out more.
Twelve different artists contributed to the book. It includes creative activities focused on mindfulness, painting, drawing, making, writing and storytelling. People can compile their own version of NASA’s Golden Record! Construct a 360 degree illustration! Make a puppet using household recycling!
Create to Connect is a project designed to reduce isolation for people aged 55 and over. Artists created a series of resources that older adults could access from the safety of their homes. An addition to art packs, they have included live online workshops and video tutorials.
