The Art of Outdoor Play

The Art of Outdoor play is a collaborative research project between Earlham Early Years Centre, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts Education team and Artists Townley and Bradby.

The project explores how the children use the garden at Earlham Early Years Centre, and what their creative play teaches them about the outdoors. During 2014, we have introduced new creative elements into the garden, such as new materials or objects to play with, to see if they have an impact on how the children play in the garden.

The research findings will be presented in two ways, a publication or 'toolkit' for other early years settings and an artist film documenting the project.
