Art is where the home is
‘Art is where the home is’ brings you a programme of art activities to do within the home, with the aim of helping families to stay creative during this difficult time.
Our activities are for everyone – though our Activity Packs and Create at Home activities are particularly perfect for children and young people to do at home along with parents and carers. Each one is designed to be fun, educational and bring us all together through art and imagination.
The Art Cave
Join artists Iris and Tom every week in the secret ‘Art Cave’ underneath Firstsite for buckets full of fun. Get stuck in with crazy creations you can make at home, and tonnes of drawing tips and tricks! Warning: may contain silliness.Find out more
We’re bringing ‘Art is where the home is’ directly from artists’ studios into your home. In our first workshop, join artist Simon Carter live from his studio via zoom as he shows you how to turn the view from your window into an artwork.FInd out more
