Happy New Year to everyone! 2023 was another great year for us at Arts for All, containing plenty of fun and lots of love. Thank you to everyone who follows along on our adventures and supports us! Now, lets recap December!
Pop Up Stall with British Land
At the beginning of the month we had a pop-up stall at the offices of British Land! We made keyrings, coasters, jewelry, christmas cards and more to sell to raise money!
Day Out to Caroline's Mums
On the 8th December we got on a minibus to Caroline's family home - a gorgeous countryside home with a log fire, it was extra Christmassy, and they cooked us a delicious roast dinner with all the trimmings - and Christmas crackers! The adult group got individual, homemade Christmas presents from Sarah, Caroline's sister, who is a ceramicist. She made them their own bowls with their names on them! We played games, listened to music and ate all the chocolate we could find!
EY Volunteer Day
Our good friend Sophiya brought her colleagues in from EY for a volunteer day - they got creative with the clubs and helped us decorate for Christmas!
Kids Club Creativity!
Some amazing festive creations from the kids in December...
A day out to WEIL's offices
We were invited back to WEIL to spend the day in their offices, meeting the teams, doing art activities, and ofcourse eating food!
We got creative with spare canvas wedges and used them to build little homes on Christmas cards - how cute are they?!
Kids End of year party!
Ofcourse we had to celebrate end of term with the kids - they all took home their gifts, and we had a sessions of crafts and plenty of treats!
Caroline, Philip and Debbie's Lunch Out
During the festive time off, Caroline took Philip and Debbie out for a pub lunch - yum!
Coming up in 2024...
We've already had our 'commitee' meeting with the adults group (on the first day back!) and wrote down all of their requests and dreams for 2024 - we plan to make as many of them come true as possible! So stay tuned - we're in for another jam packed, fun filled year!!
