Creative Play for Early Years

'Elements' Visual Arts

'Imaginary Leaps' presents early years visual arts workshops with a multitude of themes, to suit any group from Sarah Hicks. Her art play sessions draw inspiration from the natural world, and enable children and families to experience nature through creative practice. Working with found ephemera and recycled materials, alongside conventional art materials, Sarah’s workshops enable imaginative, creative play, transforming natural objects from the everyday to the extraordinary. She introduces a range of art techniques- painting, printing, collage, sculpture, mixed media, photo montage, photography, graphic design, mosaic, graffiti and many more!

Workshops include -

> Creating inspiring environments as a starting point for storytelling and creative play,
> Outdoor arts play, exploring the shapes, colours and textures of nature,
> Image making by using and drawing inspiration from natural materials,
> Using found objects from everyday life to create images, characters, stories and much more,
> Junk modelling and sculpture to create imaginary worlds and characters
> Interactive installations
> Making Shadow puppets & play
> Puppetmaking from natural materials
> Clay play

All of the workshops work on the basis of quality interaction with the children, to enable them to harness their innate creativity and use their imagination to its full extent.
Sarah’s workshops always receive extremely positive feedback. She is also experienced at working with PMLD young children.
