In response to the ongoing lockdown, we have started a number of initiatives to keep in contact with our members.
With the mission to ‘Stay Well, Stay Creative, Stay Connected’, Arts Network has been producing online arts and crafts tutorials designed to be able to do at home. With three original videos released each week covering a range of techniques, we hope our members and supporters find something that suits them. Click here to visit our Youtube account where you can watch the latest videos.
We have also been releasing our bi-weekly ‘Stay Connected’ Zine. This activity booklet is jam packed with fun activities to do at home. Our members receive a physical copy in the post and a monthly bumper pack which includes art materials. If you are not a member you can access our back catalogue through our site. Click here to check it out!
We have also been sharing our members’ amazing artwork over social media. If you are a member and would like to share some of your work, we would love to see it! Send it to us either via social media or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to see what we have posted so far.

This includes our ‘Arts Network Challenge’ videos, and our ‘Stay Connected’ activity packs. Make sure to follow our social media pages to stay up to date.
Kew Gardens: Orchid Festival
In February we visited Kew Garden’s 25th Orchid Festival. Themed on the country of Indonesia, the dazzling displays were inspired by Indonesia’s wildlife and plant diversity.
Thank you to Kew for having us!
Royal Academy: Picasso & Paper
Recently we took part in a Picasso & Paper Workshop at the Royal Academy. Whilst there we were able to take part in a workshop where we created our own Picassoesque pieces with collage.
Thanks to the Royal Academy for having us!
