small ideas for BIG IMAGINATIONS
AGWA Gently aims to offer creative inspirations and ideas that might spark children and families to leave their screens and play with the world for a while.
The activities are grouped loosely into themes that offer gentle explorations into the elements and principles of art and design, and some additional sensorial and poetic frames.
The ideas are really invitations to carve pockets of time in the day to slow down and tune in to sounds, textures, colours, shadows, shapes and rhythms.
