KERRY Local Creative Youth Partnership (Kerry LCYP) at Kerry ETB has announced a suite of online creativity resources that are available to parents, schools, youth groups, children and young people.

The information is located on the online resources section of the LCYP pages on the Kerry ETB website and can be accessed by searching the website

Activities, videos, manuals and step by step instructions on all things creative can be printed off or downloaded and used as step by step guides to help you get creative at home.

Included also are video demonstrations by artists and craft makers, and fun instructional guides for youth leaders and teachers to help making and creating that bit easier at home during the current lockdown.

“We are conscious that during a lockdown, young people are looking for things to do that are different, a bit of fun but also have some degree of learning involved. We are hopeful that schools, youth groups and families will find the list of activities useful and will give them a go”, stated Ann O’Dwyer, Director of Schools, Youth and Music at Kerry ETB.

The activities include a range of craft and design step by step guides, but also a series of video workshops that can be included in a lesson or watched at home or in school – workshops on poetry, design, drama, art and much more.

There are also comedy sketches to enjoy online, and craft activities that use everyday household materials that can be sourced in the kitchen or cheaply in the local shop.

Design projects include everything from découpage to designs for bird houses and bird feeders, painting, poetry and creative writing instruction.

There is also a history of animation video and a screen and playwriting video workshop that will appeal to young film makers.

“We asked creative practitioners in Kerry to share their know-how on a range of activities to suit different age groups.   The step by step guides and videos will help you get creative at home, but equally transfer if you are looking for new ways to working with young people online”, stated Deirdre Enright, Co-Ordinator of the Kerry Local Creative Youth Partnership Programme at Kerry ETB.

There is also a handbook of creative exercises that artists and tutors will enjoy and anyone who is looking for creative ways to work with young people.
