Thanks to generous funding from Youth Arts Collective North East, classical musician Abigail Sinar and Theatre maker Ellie Griffiths have been working in residence at two special developmental nurseries in Aberdeen for two months.
Working closely with the children and staff they delivered high quality arts experiences, exploring music and music in a variety of ways. They hope to create a toolkit that can be shared widely for practitioners working in early years and SEN settings.
At the beginning of Summer 2017 we've taken the Barn to schools around Aberdeen with Ellie and Abi. They have done a wonderful job putting the Creative engagement at the forefront of this project. 'Patterns' is a visual and sound project that engages and focuses on working with autistic children in a creative way. We had an end of project celebration with the parents and children today at Seaton Developmental Nursery. This project was developed by our Learning and Engagement Officer Linzy McAvoy.
