Event description

Description

Join Thea Jacob, from Song Box, to explore paintings and sculptures in the light and airy Burton Gallery, making up our own stories using the characters and scenes in the pictures.

This accessible session is designed for children and young adults who enjoy engaging with new spaces, multi sensory experiences, colour and music. Family and siblings of all ages are welcome. Wheel chair and mobility aide friendly.

Everyone will be able to join in at their own level and in their own way. Using your own communication aides, plus resources from the gallery, we will create our own original stories from the characters and scenes in the exhibition, and of course our own imaginations, with added Song Box songs, props and movement to enliven the tale.

What other families say:
"Enjoyed the Song Box activities so much – please can we have more often – brings the gallery to life!" May 2016

"fantastic, multi sensory, fun, engaging workshop in a beautiful setting. Different ages and abilities catered for by Thea who is a caring and skilful facilitator. I definitely recommend it." Rebecca with Jack 9, Charlie 7 & Lucy 3 Song Box pop-up May 2016

Please note: Thea works in small groups at York Art Gallery, with a maximum of 6 families in each storymaking session. Book early to be sure of a place! Thea can give refunds up to the day before if you need to cancel nearer the time. If the session you want sells out before you can book, text Song Box on 07855 126408 to go on the waiting list. If enough families are keen, Thea can put on extra sessions. www.york-songbox.co.uk
