Incy Wincy Babies 2021
Pre-recorded videos released — 5 Feb | 9 April | 4 Jun | 6 Aug | 1 Oct 2021
Look, listen, touch for babies
Designed for babies under 2 with a carer
Incy Wincy Babies is a visual arts program led by Barking Spider Visual Theatre that guides babies and their carers through a visual art experience. Babies are shown stimulating artworks and played with in a supportive environment. Research is proving that positive health and developmental outcomes for babies depends on interactions with caregivers that are responsive, warm and consistent. These relationships play an integral role in shaping a child’s future health and life outcomes. It is in the spirit of supporting caregivers to develop these bonds through engagement with art that we offer this program.
In 2021, we will be offering this program online each second month for you to enjoy with your baby in your own time at home.
Incy Wincy Babies pre-recorded videos will be released on the following Fridays:
- 5 February – Colour, shape and movement
- 9 April – Exploring texture: Make a sensory mobile
- 4 June – Autumn Leaves: Sensory bags
- 6 August – Shadow Play: Familiar becoming unfamiliar
- 1 October
