FAMILY ART FUN ONLINE: Create, think & care together!

We hear a lot about how to keep our bodies healthy, but what does it mean be healthy in our minds, too?

Free!

Hosted online via Zoom

Join Croydon art space Turf online during half term, for a special family workshop!

We hear a lot about how to keep our bodies healthy, but what does it mean be healthy in our minds, too?

The artists in Turf’s latest art project ‘Present State Examination‘ have been thinking about this.

In this online workshop, we’ll work through fun activities together from our Exhibition Activity Guide to help us think about how we can take care of ourselves and other people.

// PARENTS’ GUIDE

This session is most suitable for anyone ages 7+. It’s inspired by the ‘Present State Examination’ exhibition found at psexamination.co.uk, which contains references to mental health crises and addiction. The session and guide won’t directly quote exhibition content, but refers to artworks which deal with these subjects. If you’re exploring the website with children, we recommend that adults look over the content first to decide if it’s appropriate for your child.
