This project was begun in Spring 2020 in response to the Covid-19 lockdown measures when our lottery-funded inter-generational schools and care home project School Ties was temporarily halted. School Ties funder, the National Lottery, very generously agreed for funds to be repurposed to provide for the new art sacks.
There was great excitement in our offices when our beautiful bespoke heritage colouring and painting books arrived from the printers. All images and layouts were brought together in a beautiful book and were designed and created by local artist Trudie Wilson, along with our team.
The books have been distributed to Island children and older residents, along with colouring pencils, paint palettes, brushes and arty postcards as part of the Pencil Case project so they can carry on creating and keeping in touch with each other.
