ONLINE DRAWING CLASS
64 MILLION ARTISTS JANUARY CHALLENGE
The January challenge is 31 days of creative challenges for each day of the month. In 2020, 30,000 people took part and over 98% said that it had a positive impact on their wellbeing.
2021 is coming, and this year, we’ve enlisted the help of three inspiring creative people to help make The January Challenge bigger and better than ever.
Our three guest collaborators have each selected 31 of your brilliant creative ideas, one for every day of the month of January. Thank you to everybody who submitted a challenge idea!
Choose your challenge – or, choose The Wildcard which will be a mixture of all three adventures…
I am a Performance and Health Nutritionist (SENr register) running my own business ‘Nurture’, providing nutritional programmes in primary and secondary schools. At present, operating in the North West of England. This entails practical cooking sessions, one-to-one support, supermarket visits, recipes and workshops with pupils, parents and teachers educating them on the benefits of good nutrition by providing them the knowledge to make informed choices. Being ‘Healthy’ is seen to be a middle class preserve, meaning you need money to eat and lead a healthy lifestyle. The goal of ‘Nurture’ is to dispel this by educating children and parents that your financial standing does not matter, that you can still lead a healthy lifestyle by following the mantra “Education from the roots up”.
I am, also, a sessional worker at ‘The Joshua Tree foundation’ providing nutritional support and cooking to children and families affected by cancer. This work directly links in with my research with researchers from Liverpool John Moore’s and Edge Hill university’s and future research in applying nutrition and exercise strategies to positively alter body compositional changes during aftercare treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
