Simple, fun and inspirational arts activities that boost emotional wellbeing
Arts activities created for children by cultural organisations and artists in collaboration with an Arts & Health specialist.
We know that creative activities make a huge impact on children's lives. But many children don’t have access to arts resources or ideas in the home. That’s why we’ve worked with artists and cultural organisations to create high-quality and accessible arts activities designed to meet the needs of children and young people.
All our activities have been designed with expert knowledge of how arts and culture can be harnessed to improve outcomes and health for vulnerable children.
Our arts activities encompass music, drama, art, craft, and sculpture for a range of ages and abilities. We’ve made sure all our activities are accessible and inclusive for all children. And they’re FUN!

Arts Drop was developed through a collaboration between the Creative Learning Guild and Arts and Health specialist Elaine Burke, with funding from The National Lottery.
The pilot was generously supported by the Arts Council Bridge Organisation for Yorkshire and Humber IVE, Open Minds service run by Calderdale Council and the Community Foundation for Calderdale.
In addition, business support came from YPO who supplied our arts materials for the initial roll out of Arts Drop and are continuing to support the project.
