I Picture This connects people that cannot visit museums and galleries with public art collections. We work with care settings, care organisations and community groups. We also provide services to museums, galleries and art organisations.
Getting started with art can be daunting but our free toolkit will give you a practical framework and boost your confidence.
Written by I Picture This and the Wallace Collection in consultation with NAPA (National Activity Providers Association), the toolkit guides carers and Activity Coordinators in planning and delivering cheap, accessible, person-centred art activities.
I Picture This: at home art packs are an activity in an envelope.
Each themed pack contains three or four high quality images and notes to guide you. The art packs are perfect for carer-givers to use in one-to-one conversations, for Activity Coordinators to use in discussion sessions, and for family and friends to look at together.
We visit care homes, day centres and community venues in Hertfordshire.
Our visit encourages people to look at art, form ideas and share them with others. Each interactive session is designed to meet the interests of the participants and can be tailored to complement the work of visiting artists and art therapists.
We can visit individual rooms and high dependency units by prior arrangement.
We want to help you enjoy art.
Bespoke training sessions help staff and volunteers gain confidence and develop skills for delivering a vibrant, varied and person-centred programme of everyday art activities.
Our relaxing wellbeing sessions include slow looking, looking with the senses, and creative activities.
Currently on offer in Hertfordshire only.
We can help you work with organisations that support older people.
With over 15 years experience of museum work in a variety of care settings, Catherine can help you to design, deliver and evaluate an accessible dementia-friendly programme for delivery on- or off-site.
We also work with frontline museum and gallery staff to help them feel confident in welcoming people living with dementia into your museum or gallery.
