Our Street

10 February 2021 15:00 - 03 March 2021 16:00

There is room for everyone on our street – join us for four weekly sessions exploring oil pastel activities from the comfort of your own home.

Our Street is a collaborative project between The Art House’s Creative Ageing and Studio of Sanctuary projects.

Although we can’t all be together at the moment, we wanted to create some arts activities that you can do at home. We want to learn more about your streets, so join us for four weekly video tutorials about oil pastels and complete the activities to create your own street.

Studio of Sanctuary

Our Studio of Sanctuary programme brings people from refugee, asylum seeker and local Wakefield communities together using visual art. We are funded by the Tudor Trust to run projects like this and we also support help refugees and asylum seekers who are professional artists to start making work and build a career in the UK

Creative Ageing

Creative Ageing is a weekly art group for older people affected by dementia and their carers. Inspired by Equal Art’s Creative Age, this project is based on the growing understanding that creativity is intact long after other cognitive functions decline. Until it is safe to meet in person once again, the group is currently engaging with online video and zoom sessions to create authentic and exciting artwork.
