Hello from Miss Mccluskey,
Be creative !
Experiment & explore through Art&Design …
The Creative Minds Team was set up to support Creatives- Artists & Makers
and encourage creativity-
in our schools and in our community.
That’s you and me and everyone we know!
The Creative Minds Blog has lots of ideas for activities in Art, Dance, Drama & Music.
*Parents/Carers will need to help younger children navigate the Creative Minds Blog and choose activities.
“The power of creativity and being able to be creative – promoting a mental state of calm, joy, learning and challenge”
Cultural Coordinator Creative Minds Team
………… Creativity Cards …………
Creative MindsTeam have produced Creativity Cards
These can be used at home-
“The thinking behind the Activity Cards is that it is an easy way to inspire creativity with limited resources and without too much direction.
Everyone can explore their own creativity and express themselves.
They can also provide some focus when it is difficult to concentrate on other things – a mindful activity.”
