Artist James Aldridge is running the Making Memories project with First Steps Nursery and The Secret Garden in Salisbury
‘Making Memories is about young children being given vital opportunities to use their hands, bodies, imaginations and intellect to investigate, enjoy and learn from the outdoors.
Research shows that today’s children have less opportunity to freely explore their local outdoor environment, with negative consequences for physical and mental health, and knowledge of/respect for the natural environment.
This project will enable children and staff to learn from working with an experienced, professional artist, specialised in using art to enable learning in the outdoors. It will see art being used to engage young children in a multi-sensory exploration of a local garden, a community space set up to foster a fascination for the natural world.’
