Visiting Artist workshops
Family Art Voyage brings exciting artists from various disciplines to run guest workshops with the Licketyspit Children & Families Network! The idea came from asking families what else they might like to do with their Porridge & Play group and we consult the children we work with about which artists to voyage with.

Thanks to all our participants and to our artists Adie Baako (dancer), Thomas Annang (drummer), Ali Maclaurin (set designer), Hamish Macdonald (poet), Caitlin Forbes (actor/musician), Jaz Grady (visual artist) and Catherine Lindow (illustrator).
With the help of 19 CFN children, we chose the artists for our first 6 family art voyages. You can see everyone who auditioned at the taster event in Muizza’s drawing below!
The 2021 project was supported by Awards for All.
You can read about the Art Voyage pilot sessions we did with Adie Baako and Amy Geddes in 2020 and 2021, here.
We are now including Family Art Voyage sessions as part of other projects, including our New Scots Integration Project, Porridge & Play Hubs.
