The specially designed booklets detail art activities that you can do at home, on your own, or in a group. They are designed for people who have not done much art before. They can be adapted to push your skills a little further, should you wish to.
Twelve different artists contributed to the book. It includes creative activities focused on mindfulness, painting, drawing, making, writing, and storytelling. Compile your own version of NASA’s Golden Record! Construct a 360-degree illustration! Make a puppet from your household recycling!
For a lot of older people, the lack of online access has made it hard to take part in cultural activities during the pandemic.
City Arts have been delivering printed copies to older people across Nottinghamshire. They come with an art pack that contains a range of art materials. Recipients include older people supported by Framework Housing, NCHA, Radford Care Group, Jigsaw Homes, Rushcliffe CVS Befrienders, Nottingham Carers Association and Artspeak.
