How You Can Get Involved
Children's Art Therapy Workshops
Adult Legacy Paintings
We provide free staff training for our legacy painting workshops which can then be run at your own hospice as frequently as you like throughout the year.
No previous watercolour experience is required as we share many examples to help spark inspiration.
In the near future we may be in a position to offer free online tutorials to accompany these sessions.
Hospices can signup here and if you are not connected to a hospice then please contact us and we can look at setting them up in your local area.
Online Storytelling Workshops
The online storytelling project supports families in creating their own stories and requires working alongside the adults in the family to gather memories and put them into a short illustrated story for the children.
No writing experience in required and Gillian Seale who is a published children’s author illustrator who guide families carefully through the process. Free short videos are provided as well as live tutorials.
The course is run with the online sessions three times a week giving families plenty of options to choose from. They can attend as frequently as they wish. They can also step back if life gets busy and return at a later point when things quieten down.
Individuals can sign up here.
