Type of Event: Art Workshop

Canolfan Ni Logo

The PAINT PALS art project is an intergenerational project involving with children from the local primary school Ysgol Caer Drewyn and members of Memory Lane, the Friendship Club based at Canolfan Ni.

The children and adults will be paired to become paint pals and will correspond by postcard, each one writing on a blank card and illustrating the other side with their paintings and drawings. They will do this throughout the month of May, and we will deliver them back and forth to each group.

The project will also include a colouring swap session in which both the adults and selected children from years 1, 2 & 3 will create line drawings that will be swapped with the other group and coloured in.

South Denbighshire Community Partnership

The postcards and drawings will be exhibited at the end of May at Canolfan Ni. All participants, their families and caregivers invited to a special celebratory pop-up exhibition.
