Art at Home

Art activities for you to do at home

ArtsLink and the ArtsLink Fizz! team have put together a series of activities for you to share with your family or to do on your own. We hope that they will support you creatively during this time of social isolation.

Each activity uses basic art materials – if you haven’t quite got what we recommend then use whatever you have at home.

It does not matter what order you do these activities in – just dive into whichever ones you fancy.  New activities will be added regularly and most include image and video links.

We would love to see the art you make – do share your creations on our social media pages.
