Meet Arty, a little polar bear who loves to draw and make marks but lives in a world of white – as white as a blank sheet of paper. He wishes he had colours to use so he sets out on a quest to find some.
Premiered in 2019 at Unity Theatre, Liverpool, A Polar Bear in a Snowstorm is an amazing experience for children in the early years. This story introduces key mark making skills and an understanding of how colours work singly and in combination. Arty and friends help the audience to overcome any hesitancy to make their mark on a pristine piece of paper, building confidence and stimulating engagement.
The performance lasts 30mins and is followed by 30mins mark-making, drawing and storytelling workshop ideal for children aged 3-5.
