Finding accessible holiday activities for children with complex needs can be a real challenge – so we were delighted when local arts charity Ignite Imaginations offered to run free art workshops for our members’ children during the summer holidays.
Flexibility is key for our families, and Ignite Imaginations were more than happy to allow older kids who enjoy “younger” activities as well as non-disabled siblings to attend the sessions, too.
Supported by professional artists, the children learnt how to use a range of new materials and techniques. The young participants grew in confidence and took great pride in showing off their creations.
“Thoughtful, well-prepared and relaxed session.”
“It makes art fun and engaging in a calm and relaxing atmosphere.”
