Iniva Creative learning have produced a printed and downloadable leaflet with the support of Engage and Children in Need. The leaflet provides a taster of what we do in our ArtLab+ projects and aims to help primary pupils explore their emotions with their families and carers at home.

We recognise that the last few months have been incredibly hard on many of us, and particularly hard on our children’s mental health. The activities, devised by art therapist Sarah Furneaux-Blick and psychotherapist Lyn French (director of A Space Therapies Service) use artwork created by children from this years ArtLab+ led by artist Shepherd Manyika. ArtLab+ is a programme of workshops delivered at Earlsmead Primary School. The ArtLab+ artists all hope that their work can help inspire and support their peers.

The leaflet transforms to become a stencil for pattern making, frames to see the world differently and provides you with building shapes that slot together to create mini sculptures. All this whilst giving space for and supporting conversations around emotions for children, carers and the whole family.

Please get in touch if you would like to receive printed leaflets for your school.
