Rural Arts today launches its RADISH Resource Pack – a selection of beautiful, hand-drawn art activities for anyone 4+.
The Thirsk-based charity, which enriches lives and connects communities across North Yorkshire, has been running #RADISH – Rural Arts’ Daily Inspiration while Staying at Home – for over a month, and all activity has been online – until now.
“We’ve reached over 1,000 people via #RADISH so far, and it will keep running until we’re able to meet again in person. However, we know lots of communities across North Yorkshire aren’t online – or need a break from so much screen time” says Chief Executive, Max May. “Our new #RADISH Resource Pack has one activity a day for a full week, plus a special bonus inside!”
The #RADISH Resource Pack can be downloaded from Rural Arts’ website for a donation of your choosing. “We know that now is a really hard time for people financially – but, as we approach our thirtieth anniversary, we need to ensure Rural Arts itself is around for at least thirty more”, says Mr. May. Further, Rural Arts is working with local Community Support Organisations and other charities to safely distribute printed copies to those in need.
The activities in the resource pack have been designed and drawn by Sorcha McCole, Rural Arts’ Visual Arts Coordinator. The pack itself was designed by fellow Thirsk business, . Rural Arts activities during the Coronavirus pandemic are made possible by support from the CAF Coronavirus Emergency Fund and Hambleton District Council.
