Re-use and re-imagine
Let’s make some art!
The very first pictures made by people – the cave paintings – depicted animals, and ever since nature has inspired artists. Getting creative is a wonderful way to get connected with nature and notice what’s around you.
Let’s get creative!
- Choose artwork or your favourite creature or nature spot
- Recreate it with household items and what you find in the garden
- Take a picture to post on Instagram
- Tag #HealthFest2020
- Write a little bit about what it is
Post your creations on Instagram by September 30, and you stand a chance to win bottles of Warneford Apple Juice, made from Warneford Meadow apples!
In this example one of our staff has recreated the Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s painting Great Black Woodpecker (oil on canvas, 1892-1894) with scarves, socks, a belt and a bottle of nail polish on a yoga mat
This activity has been inspired by many museums around the world who started arts challenges during the COVID-19 lockdown. We look forward to seeing your creations!
Winners will be picked up Oxford Health Arts Partnership leads Angela Conlan and Tom Cox.
