Today's challenge is inspired by a project running in Thanet by Squirrelarts.SquirrelARTS have come up with an idea to engage the young children in Thanet, to use art as a thread to connect us with each other and help us in ways of coping through the coronavirus pandemic.
Come together in the big make together
Across the world we are being asked to isolate ourselves from one another within communities, this little Art project is a way of thinking of creative ways to bring us together. We invite you to sit around a virtual community table and help produce a big art collage together. Whether at home alone or on lock down with family, whatever your age, (As long as school age) and wherever you come from, we welcome all children of Thanet schools to take up this invitation to create a piece of art work in the theme of
something new from your new everyday. #duringthecoronavirus
See Slide for the rules
Send us a photo of your finished square, with #duringthecoronvirus your name and a short description.
(If you wish to remain anonymous, let us know).
We will share your square on our Facebook page and our Instagram feed, and later on some will be featured on our new website- Squirrelarts.
LOOK AFTER YOUR SQUARES CAREFULLY
Once the coronavirus has come to a close, and we are returning to ordinary patterns of life, we encourage children from local schools around Thanet to exhibit their works with SquirrelARTS. Place to be determined.
Send photos of your finished square to email@example.com.
We of course would like to see them too at firstname.lastname@example.org
