This Information Sheet looks at the use of arts based interventions with young people involved in or at risk of offending behaviour. It focuses on the potential benefits to be gained from participating in the arts, recognising arts programmes as an important resource when working with young people involved in offending behaviours and on the ways practitioners can access and incorporate the arts into their practice. Ranging from visual arts such as drawing, painting and sculpture, to music, singing, dance, drama, storytelling and creative writing, the variation and breadth of possible arts interventions is vast.
