About Spring Nature Art

Two full days of bright and colourful art and craft activities to celebrate the arrival of Spring and the venture into the beauty of the natural world as it awakens from Winter.

What you will learn on this course

On this two-day course, the group will go looking for signs of Spring emerging in our neighbouring Cannon Hill Park. Participants will also be venturing out to draw and paint 'en plein air' landscape pictures in the park.

Once back at MAC, the participants will be making their own papercraft blossoms and decorative vessels to display them in and take home. The children well experiment with animal inspired printmaking and explore collagraph and monoprint techniques.

Who is this course for?

This two-day course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years old. It is open to all ability levels. We provide a learning support worker and all our staff our DBS checked. Parents are not expected to accompany children on the course.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. A parent or carer may assist their child if required but must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to consider key age developments, materials being used, and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

All course material and equipment are provided.

Children should dress appropriately as some visual art workshops can get a bit messy.

Please note that lunch is not provided. Children will need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one-hour break.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs for this course.
