FUSION Creative Camps are coming to Barnsley… an all new, interactive online holiday club for families.
Over three weeks this summer professional artists and cultural organisations will introduce weekly challenges for children to explore via drama, art, crafts, forest school, music and dance activities using Zoom. Families will be supported by the artists via a closed Facebook group with an online group show and tell at the end of their week to celebrate everyone’s achievements!
The activities are designed to be fun and as easy as possible for families of all artistic abilities to take part. There will be at least one option that does not require the use of any resources and those that do will be made up of basic materials found around the house.
How to take part in Creative Camps weekly themed activities…
Step 1: Families sign up for a FREE weekly themed activity via Eventbrite - including Explorers and Exploration, This Is Me and Outdoor Adventuring.
Step 2: Watch a short film where the artist introduces the activities.
Step 3: Online interactive session (no more than 40 mins) - an opportunity for families to meet the artist/organisation who will set the challenge. Families have a week to complete their chosen activity.
Step 4: Mid-week Facebook drop-in session where families can get creative in real time, show each other what they have created so far and get helpful hints and tips.
Step 5: Virtual show and tell - practitioners will run a show and tell at the end of the week OR give the option for families to send photos of their work to an online gallery on Fusion’s website.
Families can sign up for as many weeks as they like, just one or all three! Activities will be suitable for children aged from 4 to 11 years. Participating artists include Chol Theatre, Barnsley Museums, Open College of the Arts, Barnsley Libraries and many more.
