Exploring colours and their symbolism as a vehicle to express emotion, students will use a range of mediums. They will also discover how to communicate their beliefs through art in a way that is inclusive and considerate of their peers.

This activity will take a place in a range of settings, weather dependent. Where possible we encourage students to use the outdoors because of the links that have been made between green space and increased well-being.


Plenary and a chance for an informal chat to ask any questions.
