The Light Box is an interactive art project that invites children into a purpose built illuminated space and encourages them to explore the use of light, through a series of tactile mediums. Children will have the opportunity to invent and experiment using an assortment of torches, projections, shadow screens, glow paint, UV and interactive lighting.

‘Our inventors’ will engage the children in inventing, reflecting, painting glow in the dark pictures, playing with shadow puppets and creating giant sculptures. Whilst being encouraged to talk, tell stories, imagine and design within this safe and interactive environment.

We will use a number of materials that will encourage and inspire playful mark making and early writing. Providing a fantastic springboard for children’s literacy development.

This project is applicable to all ages, and can be adapted to suite your needs.
