We know how hard it is to balance home working with home schooling, struggling to get kids focused so that you can get on yourself! Add to that a handy dose of floundering with skills you’re not sure of and the whole experience can leave you feeling, well, less than expert.

That’s where Bluff It can help. This series features short videos presented by artists and focused on specific techniques that parents can master. This way you can bluff it in style and engage and support your children in creative activity with confidence!

The videos are primarily aimed at parents of 7 – 11 year olds but are suitable for anyone wanting to benefit from simple ideas and techniques. They’re launched weekly on Mondays and then followed on Fridays at midday with an Ask The Artist live webinar Q&A from the artist. This is an opportunity for parents to find out more, ask questions and share their experiences.

The first three Bluff It videos are:

Monday 18 MayBluff It: Creative Doodling, presented by artist and lecturer Caroline Flage

Monday 25 MayBluff It: Collage, presented by artist Francesca Hawkesworth

Monday 1 June Bluff It: Animation, presented by animator and projection mapper Jamie Knight

Make sure you spread the word far and wide to all little artists and their parents (or enjoy getting involved yourself!).
