Full Description:   

This practical and highly accessible manual contains 142 art activities developed specifically for use with groups of people of all ages and abilities.

The activities include drawing, painting, collage and sculpture. They cover diverse themes, such as relationships, emotions, culture, spirituality and celebrations. They are clearly laid out to show the aim, suitable age range, time to allow, suggested group numbers and material required.

Both newcomers and experienced practitioners will be inspired by this collection of art activities.

Sample Activity: How I Feel

    Aim: Development of self-awareness
    Age: 7 upwards
    Time: 20-30 minutes
    Numbers: Small to large group

    Activity
  1. Paint, sculpt or draw how you feel.
  2. A useful way to start is to work with your eyes closed for a few seconds

    Consideration
    Stress the importance of allowing the image to emerge, as opposed to predetermining what it will look like before they start.
