Welcome to the wonderful world of Creative Learning! Here you will find a range of different Home Learning kits designed to enhance your child’s understanding of the world through creative project based learning. The kits are ideal for families wanting something a little more structured for school holidays, families on an ‘unschooling’ adventure as well as teachers wanting a little practical inspiration to revamp their curriculum.

Further inspiration and support

img_3844-1The idea of the Creative Learning Kits is for you and your family to find the right balance for you. It is important to remember that this isn’t school.. there no requirement to present things in a particular way or to hand things in for marking! However, if you would like a little more support or maybe just some more visual inspiration for the project box that you are working through, you are in luck.

Pinterest Boards..

There are Pinterest boards to complement every one of the large project boxes. On here you will find a range of different visual loveliness to inspire your creative journey and stretch it further.

Templates and Extra Downloads..

For each of the project boxes there are activities that encourage a range of different activities.. sometimes you might find it easier to use one of the downloadable templates to give a little more structure and guidance.. or maybe just to colour in and get a bit Arty.

Watch this space for extra downloads and templates to help your project grow.

About Mrs Arty-Textiles

Gemma Whitelock writes and designs under the ‘Mrs Arty-Textiles’ brand name. During her school and college teaching she regularly blogged on her classroom practice, discussing all things ‘Art and Textiles’ and the name sort of stuck..img_3828-1

As an Art and Textiles teacher of 10 years, Gemma is now finally be able to step away from the full time teaching to do ‘big girl’ work (as she calls it) using her illustration skills and classroom experience to create a range of education products. After having the experience of developing creative skills in others across the secondary and FE sector and completing quite focussed research as part of her MA in education, Gemma wrote a book (How to Create a Quirky Classroom) to encourage more engaging and creative hands on classroom based learning.. This passion for creative learning led to the development of a range of creative kits to encourage families to get involved in more hands on making to balance against the modern tidal wave of technology and ‘screen based’ work.

“It’s probably not a surprise that I believe strongly that the best education experience has a good dollop of creativity in it.. Whether you are a parent wanting to enrich your child’s schooling or whether you are part of the ever increasing network of home educators in the UK, the education kits provide lots of opportunities for creative development at home.”

Gemma is also available for consultancy work to support the development of creative project based learning opportunities and custom branded resources in Primary or Secondary school settings.
