Have you heard of Arts on Prescription? Arts on Prescription schemes provide arts and creative activities for individuals struggling with some level of isolation, encouraging and promoting social engangement through classes and groups. With COVID-19 lockdowns in place recovery times have increased and social engagement has decreased. Museum Makers want to help people in their recovery through creative activities that can be done from the comfort of ones home and helping with digital social engagement. Wardown in watercolour is just one example of our challenges that can do this. Check out our other challenges here
