New educational initiative launches creative arts packs for children
Warrington Borough Council and Warrington Local Cultural Educational Partnership have commissioned a series of fun, creative arts packs for children and young people in Warrington, thanks to funding from Curious Minds and Arts Council England.
Developed by local artist Gemma Banks, the booklets are packed with ideas for children and young people of all ages to get creative, with activities ranging from drawing and making, to dance and role play.
A team of volunteers were tasked with adding a props and materials to each pack that were then distributed to a number of children most in need of activities to keep them busy throughout the summer holidays.
The booklets are now available to download for free for all children to enjoy at home.
Special thanks goes to Fox Wood Special School for their valued contribution and to our team of volunteers!
