We want to see what you’ve been doing!
More and more ideas are springing up to help keep children doing creative and fun projects during the pandemic. We would love to see them and be able to share them on our Facebook page.
Send us a video or photo of yourself and a project that you are currently working on (or that you have completed). You can get more ideas if you tune into our Rollin Art Centre Facebook Page.
Get your mom or dad to help take a video or photo of you creating art work and send it to Melissa at email@example.com. Don’t forget to give us written permission, otherwise we wont be able to post it.
We are so excited to stay connected and see what you have all been working on during these crazy times!
