As an artist and creative educator I think that looking, exploring, thinking and making Art is something that should be an essential part of our lives.

It helps us to think about our world, our responses and relationships with it. It helps us to think about ourselves, our feelings, our past, our future. It helps us to be inspired, create, to think in new ways, to question, and take risks.

We all respond to art in different ways through our own experiences. I think we should all take more time to experience Art, it helps us to enrich our learning, and our lives.

A visit to an art gallery, to make at home, to write a story, to dance; exploring, thinking, making, art is fun, it challenges and helps us to think and be individuals.

It's never too late to enjoy and experience Art. I work with many families working together to look, create, explore, enjoy Art and can see the lasting impact it has, taking discussions and making into the home, reaching everyone.

I say.............make Art accessible for all!
