When lock down started we wanted to continue to engage with our users through art, extending our activities to those who are at home and in isolation with their parents, carers, housemates or alone in their rooms. No one is venturing out! So, as a starting point, and just as Spring arrived, we came up with this idea of ‘bringing nature and its wonders into people’s houses. We sent them images of trees, flowers and butterflies to paint or draw. To help with ideas, some of them took inspirations from paintings and drawings by artists from different time periods and countries.
Here is our latest work
Here is some of our completed work from May
