- Digital illustration – a second session run by our Student Voice
We are delighted to have a second digital drawing session run by K, one of our brilliant Student Voice members. Drawing is a wonderful way to unwind and our smart phones allow us to do this digitally and so you don’t even need to find a pencil sharpener!
K has put together this new short film to teach you how to illustrate a word that is special to you. This is a great chance to learn a new skill and take some time out to relax. Enjoy having a go.
- Poetry workshop
Canterbury Christ Church University have put together a lovely lock-down poetry workshop to encourage personal wellbeing. Using two simple forms, the workshop encourages us to reflect upon lock-down, help begin to process it, and to look forward to the future. Watch Tommy’s short film and we hope that it encourages you to get writing. Enjoy.
Please note that all our activities remain on our website for you to enjoy at your leisure over the summer.
