Since 2009, Purple Patch Arts has existed to improve the lives and life chances of people with learning disabilities and autistic people by providing innovative, inclusive, creative learning experiences for them and the professionals who support them.
Covid-19 Update: We’re very happy to say that we’re working towards reopening our Lifelong Learning Programmes on Monday 21st June.
In the meantime, we know how important it is for people to stay active, engaged and stimulated, so:
- We’re running 15 group Zoom sessions a week – as well as our adapted Lifelong Learning Programmes, we’re also running music, drama, literature, movement and visual art Zoom sessions every week.
- We’ve been posting daily activities on our website, in line with our weekly theme; you can do them all at home, using resources that you should be able to find around the house and garden. We won’t be posting any more while we get ready to reopen, but there’s lots to try out on our Daily Activities page!
- Our fabulous Programme Leader Lorna has been illustrating some beautiful colouring pages to go along with our weekly theme. You can see them all here. They’re free to download and print as many times as you want!
- We’re running a Zoom disco on the first Thursday of every month from 7pm – 8.30pm. Join DJ James as he spins some classic tunes!
