Art Boxes and creative ideas during Lockdown
By celfogwmpas, Jun 2 2020 01:53PM
Since the beginning of the lockdown we have been looking at different ways in which Celf o Gwmpas can support our community to continue to be creative.
We have been posting a weekly creative challenge on our social media pages and have successfully secured funding for Art Boxes. This funding means we are able to provide regular Celf o Gwmpas participants with a box of basic but quality Art materials.
In the boxes we have included instructions, project ideas and Internet links, which we hope will help to inspire their creativity. There are lots of materials so they can also follow their own creative ideas. We will be adding to the Art Box with other art and craft ideas and materials over the coming weeks.
We are also planning an exhibition of the work shared with us during this time, once it is safe to do so.
Everyone is invited to take part in our weekly art challenges #creativechallenge, which you can find shared on Celf o Gwmpas Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds. We would be thrilled if you would like to have a go and share what you make with us, we love seeing everybody’s work! You may well end up in our exhibition.
Just like Grayson Perry and his Art Club we hope to “Unleash our collective creativity during lockdown” don’t worry about whether it is good or not, simply enjoy doing it. Grayson also says; ‘perfect reproductions of things may as well be photographs…our mistakes are our style.’ So throw your inhibitions to the wind and enjoy yourself.
Thanks to Powys Teaching health board, PAVO, Tesco bags of help and Groundwork for making this possible.
