Art Aid

Activity Sheets For Prison Learners

We produce monthly Art Aid sheets featuring creative tasks that can be done in cell and with just paper and a pencil, in hopes of inspiring creativity for people in secure settings.

For each Art Aid sheet, we commission an artist or writer who has been engaged with Koestler to set a creative task and share their experiences with creativity in custody and beyond.

Thank you to Novus for their help distributing these to their learners through in-cell screens and paper packs. If you’re an education provider or prison arts organisation, please download, share and use the sheets below. Please do let us know if you are using them to help your learners or if you have any questions or feedback.

New sheets will be available from the first Monday of every month. Establishment staff and Koestler entrants can request to be sent each new sheet directly by emailing or writing to FREEPOST Koestler Arts.

In response to the coronavirus lockdown, we created and shared weekly Art Aid activity sheets in 2020. If you are looking for more creative activities to help inspire learning in prisons and secure settings, please download our 2020 Art Aid booklet which includes 15 more tasks!
