With thanks to Severn Arts and a Creative Connections grant, we are launching the #WAWMantle digital project, asking children to share their visual arts work with WAW and their community.
At Worcester Arts Workshop we believe children learn best through creative child-led activity. Children have a lot to deal with at the moment, as they experience enormous change to their daily lives.
We want to find opportunities for children to be creative during this time, connecting with other children and their communities virtually before they are able to again enjoy meaningful social contact and live collaborative creative opportunities. In Mantle learning, children take on the role of expert, helping to increase their confidence, communication, critical thinking and creativity.
GET INVOLVED! We are kicking off the #WAWMantle project by asking children to make / draw / paint /sculpt their favourite character using any materials they would like.
Please send videos of no longer than 30 seconds or photographs of finished work to firstname.lastname@example.org, by sending the email you will agree to the video / photograph being shared on WAW and Severn Arts social media.
In sharing their projects and ideas and taking on the role of artists and teachers young people can inspire each other.
