Art Breaks focusses on children and young people with complex needs, alongside their parents, carers and non-learning disabled peers.

At creative workshops the children are given the opportunity to work collaboratively with professional artists. They will experience art as a tool for exploration, communication and self-expression. This personalised approach creates a sense of identity and ownership of their work that they make and the environment they are in.

Art Breaks workshops run during school holidays at our studio in Hastings and other venues in Sussex. We also run three sets of Saturday workshops each year.

“Art Breaks is so much more than Art in its traditional form. It is about freedom of expression and experiences. It is about inclusion at the highest level, where it has moved on from ‘fitting in’ to ‘joining in’ and a freedom to just ‘be’. “
