We're always looking to improve your experience. Please Email us your feedback.
Our team of professional artists have been working creatively to help early years' children learn new skills and have multi-sensory creative experiences.
Following a programme of early years training provided by Hempsall’s, our 5 early years artists ventured out across the county delivering artist led creative workshops. The team spent several weeks on a mutually creative journey with small groups of children at 12 early years settings and 14 Inspire libraries. It turns out there are many similarities between the way young children play and experience new materials and the way artists work!
Little Creatives workshops will help your little one unleash their creative imagination and develop new skills as they splodge, splat, scribble and squidge! The artists aim to bring to you a small taste of their specially designed sessions in a series of 'Little Creatives' online activities below.
We hope the ideas will inspire you to allow your little one to have fun with their own creativity and reach their own conclusions. Instead of making an end-product the sessions are intended to encourage families to enjoy the processes that lead to exploring, discovering and making together.
If you have made something from these online workshops that you'd be happy to share with us, we would love to see your artwork! Use #LittleCreatives and post your creations on the Inspire Arts & Culture Facebook page.
Thank you to the following early years settings for taking part in the Little Creatives journey:
Fab class. My son thoroughly enjoyed movement, yoga and the story aspect of the class. I loved taking part too, and watching him have fun; being both excited and calm.
We always enjoy these Little Creative sessions! Thanks a lot!
A very fun workshop promoting the use of recyclable materials :) we loved it.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Thanks to funding from the Miner2Major Landscape Partnership Scheme we were able to deliver a further 10 workshops at 3 Inspire libraries and 2 community venues during the summer of 2022.
