We have joined up with the West Cumbria Cultural Education Partnership (Frame) to produce a number of art packs for young carers and their families.
The “Let’s Create” packs will contain a selection of high-quality art supplies, along with a booklet full of creative activities for all the family. You can download a copy of the booklet below.
We’d like to say a huge thank you everyone who helped to support and/or fund this project:
The pack is split into different age groups to help navigate easily and each activity has step by step instructions. The age groups and images of the finished activities are just a guide, everyone’s creations are different and there is no right or wrong.
Let your imagination run wild, explore the pack, play with the materials and most of all have fun!
It would be great if you, or your parents, could share your creations with us so we can include them in our online exhibition and share them on social media.
You can do this by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sharing them on one of our Social Media accounts using #LetsCreate
IMPORTANT NOTE: only photos of art work and first names will be included in the online exhibition. By sending us your photo and name you are consenting to us sharing them in the media gallery on our website and social media.
Many other organisations in the booklet are inviting you to submit work to them, please ask permission from your parents to do this and get them to help you.
It is the responsibility of parents/ guardian to give permission and supervise any uploads/submissions of art work to any of the organisations in this booklet, including West Cumbria Carers.
The Lets’ Create packs have proven to be very popular, with over 150 requests from young carer households. We have a handful left, so if you haven’t received one, please get in touch and we’ll try to get one to you. But be quick, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
