ARTS from the START Inspiration Day, Platform. StarcatchersPhotography and visual arts workshops at 2 inspiring conferences to support Early Years Creativity, based on Creative Skills programme run by Starcatchers.

Creative Skills is an ambitious pilot programme of training which aims to put arts and creativity at the heart of Early Years practice in Scotland.

Funded by the Scottish Government and Creative Scotland, this programme offers a range of artist-led training sessions, which will enable practitioners to understand and use their own creativity to support positive experiences with the children and families they work with. Art forms include drama, dance and movement, music, storytelling and puppetry.

The programme is designed for practitioners working across the Early Years sector, including staff in nursery and family centre settings, health workers, childminders, out-of-school and play workers.
