Art Classes designed for the Wednesday Club, Refugee and Asylum seeking children age 5-13 referred by Asylum Welcome.
Fun at Fusion
Movement based classes explored traditional playground games and songs, with a selection of British playground games including hopscotch, freeze-tag and clapping songs. Video and digital photography was also used to document and build on.
Participants were encouraged to share their own versions or new games/songs from their own culture. Amongst the aims was to provide a regular safe place for the group to meet and engage in structured activity, to develop skills and expression, to encourage and enhance self confidence and esteem through meeting targets and achieving results, and to work towards a presentation/ performance for carers and parents.
