Join artist/illustrator Ruth Radcliffe at our Saturday morning Arts Club for children aged 7-11. This session looks at portraits and how to do one! 10.30 - 12.30. Tickets are £3 per child and will be available on the day at the Vestibule Reception desk. Please note that we may introduce advance booking for Arts Club - keep an eye on the website for details.
Our Saturday morning Arts Club for children aged 7-11 (and their parents and carers) offers participants an opportunity to work with real artists and creative practitioners as they explore different art forms. We provide a wide variety of materials and the children will be able to take what they have made home with them after each session. The first few sessions are being led by artists Ruth or Benny and they will provide gentle guidance to the participants, helping them to develop their artistic skills but also making sure they have lots of fun!
You can attend just one session or come to them all. There is currently no advance booking and you can just turn up on the day. We are offering these sessions at the introductory price of £3 per child, adults are free and may stay throughout the session if they wish. Most sessions will take place in the Activity Zone or the Learning Zone and payment should be made at the Reception Desk in the Vestibule. Sessions will usually include some time on the gallery for inspiration!
We do expect participants to stay for most of the session.
We will be offering participants the opportunity to work towards the Explore or Discover Arts Award if they wish - more info on that soon.
