Rural Arts has launches its RADISH Resource Pack – a selection of beautiful, hand-drawn art activities for anyone aged four and above.

The North Yorkshire-based charity, which enriches lives and connects communities across North Yorkshire, has been running #RADISH – Rural Arts’ Daily Inspiration while Staying at Home – for more than a month, and all activity has been online – until now.

“We’ve reached more than 1,000 people via #RADISH so far, and it will keep running until we’re able to meet again in person.

“However, we know lots of communities across the country aren’t online – or need a break from so much screen time” said chief executive Max May.

“Our new #RADISH Resource Pack has one activity a day for a full week, plus a special bonus inside.”

The #RADISH Resource Pack can be downloaded from Rural Arts’ website for a donation of your choosing.

“We know that now is a really hard time for people financially – but, as we approach our 30th anniversary, we need to ensure Rural Arts itself is around for at least 30 more," said Mr  May.

Further, Rural Arts is working with local Community Support Organisations and other charities to safely distribute printed copies to those in need.

The activities in the resource pack have been designed and drawn by Sorcha McCole, Rural Arts’ visual arts coordinator.

The pack itself was designed by Thirsk business, MyLittleGraphicsCo

The pack includes recycling activities and colouring in rainbows.

Rural Arts, also based in Thirsk, activities during the Coronavirus pandemic are made possible by support from the CAF Coronavirus Emergency Fund and Hambleton District Council.
