Christmas Half Term Activities are 'educational and fun'
Real Arts Workshops (RAW) were pleased to be awarded a grant from City of Wolverhampton Council to deliver arts, crafts and BSL activities over Christmas Half Term. The funding is from Department for Education for young people who are eligible for the HAF (Holidays Activities and Food) programme.
Alex Vann, a director of RAW said: “This funding required RAW to incorporate some education about healthy food choices for young people and we did this in various creative ways such as still life drawing, poster design and decorating pots containing fruit and water. We worked with a fantastic group of young people aged 10-16, some with very complex needs so we needed to ensure our activities were engaging and fun as well as educational.”
Here's what the young people told us:
We are delighted to be able to offer 4 days of free workshops to 10-16s who are eligible for the HAF (Holiday Activities and Food) funding in Wolverhampton over the Winter Holidays in December.
We are running the sessions on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th of December (no session on Wednesday 22nd of December), a mix of art, craft and British Sign Language. Please scroll down the home page to learn about the benefits of these types of activities.
