Inclusive storymaking with Song Box at York Art Gallery
Thu 13 April 2017, 15:00 – 16:00 BST
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 inclusive 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.
