Resources for Uniformed Groups - Achieving Artist or Painting Badges
We are delighted to support Uniformed Groups with our 3 short videos to help groups complete some of their art-themed badges at home. You can get your artist or painting badge using a popular City Art Centre painting as inspiration and Harvard University's See, Think, Wonder routine. This resource will help Uniformed Groups look at, talk about and appreciate art. Watch all three videos and try some of the activities. Good luck.
