Back to all projects

Art Breaks is an innovative project that focuses on children and young people with complex needs, alongside their parents, carers and peers.  Across school holidays and weekends, we offer a series of high-quality creative workshops giving children the opportunity to work in collaboration with a team of skilled professional artists and to experience art as a tool for exploration, communication and self-expression. Our programmes support individuals towards greater communication, self-expression and community integration.  We use personalised approaches to explore the potential of people with complex needs and those that support them.

Art Breaks workshops run during school holidays at our studio in Hastings and other venues in Sussex. We also run four 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.” Parent, July 2020

“All 3 children were drawn into the magical world of creativity. From a complete new Superhero, to a model island/strange land and animals.” Parent, Aug 2021
