Full Circle: Family Music Two video now available online...

We’ve had some lovely feedback of how you’ve enjoyed our Full Circle Family Music Sessions online…

And our Arts Worker Heather Moger is back with Family Music Two  available to view and for download now!

Lasting around half an hour, the session follows the Full Circle Family Music structure that your family is used to, beginning with the ball-rolling game and ending with a story.

Free to use and download, you can play the videos whenever you like and as many times as you like; use them as part of your weekly or daily routine.

Repetition is good, it’s the best way to learn, and though practice doesn’t always make perfect, we can guarantee it will make things easier!

Last chance to let us know what you think of Full Circle...

If you’ve already completed our Full Circle Family Evaluation survey – Thank You very much! – and if not, could we trouble you to take a few minutes to fill it out? This is the last week the Family Survey will be available...

Many families in Lewis and Harris have taken part in Full Circle activities by attending Creative Play, Family Music, Mini-Makes, special events and community workshops, or by using Gallery Resource Packs.

If you have been involved in any way, we value your feedback, as your comments will help us to shape the activities we run for families in the future. All the information given will be treated as confidential.

Families who have been involved in Full Circle and who struggle to afford art materials can receive a free pack with painting and drawing supplies, songs and activity ideas. Fill in the Survey and add your contact details. Packs will be distributed when the COVID-19 lockdown has ended.

Thank You for your support!

‘How are Scottish artists reacting to the lockdown?’ asks BBC Scotland Highlands and Islands reporter Steven McKenzie in his recent article...

And amongst those providing answers is Lewis based artist – the ‘Wallpaper Pirate’ – Moira Maclean.

Moira has been using her lockdown time as a chance to sort through the trove of old wallpaper, which she incorporates into her art, that she has collected over the past two decades.

You can find out more about the work of artist Moira, alongside that of Dingwall-born pop surrealist Michael Forbes, and Inverness based Frank To here.
