Art at the Start – the book!

We worked with some wonderful families in the DCA to co-create this book of art ideas. We want to encourage you to try making art together with your wee ones. You will find lots of ideas and suggestions of how to start as well as some information on why making art with young children is so beneficial.

We’d like to thank all the wee ones who tested out activities for us and who feature in this book. Our beautiful photographs were taken by David Scott. We were very fortunate to be funded by the University of Dundee IIDF fund, an SGSSS impact award, and the Festival of the Future. This book came out of our work to reach families during Covid restrictions with home art boxes. You can find out more about that project here.
