Sensory Art Toolkit (2018)

Co-developed by the National Arts Council and the Singapore Association for Mental Health, the Sensory Art Toolkit explores how different art materials and art-making processes can stimulate the senses, and enhance mental wellness. There are 11 project ideas in this toolkit, each outlined with corresponding steps and accompanying visuals. The toolkit takes an integrated Occupational Therapy approach, and information on how each activity stimulates the senses is provided, along with alternative activity ideas.

The toolkit will be helpful to social and healthcare practitioners, volunteers, and other professionals working with seniors, children, or clients with disabilities. It allows them to appreciate the relationship between art-making and one’s sensory experience, and plan an art activity that is suitable for their clients with this knowledge.
