Event Information

For those who like dinosaurs (and who doesn't, really?), here's a day of roarsome model making. There'll be large scale cardboard construction and some large scaly decorating to do.

 Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need any previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. We can provide a learning support worker and a parent or carer may assist their child if required. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account 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.

What will you learn on this course?

This is a fun one-day workshop where children will learn how to make their own dinosaur model.

With individual support from the tutor, the children will be guided through the process of designing and constructing their dinosaur out of cardboard and paper, including 3D details and features. The models will be given a skin of brightly coloured tissue paper using a technique called decoupage and then decorated with a variety of crafty materials.

Do you need to bring anything?

Children need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one hour break. All course materials and equipment are provided.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs for this course.

Who teaches this course?

Benny Semp

Benny has brought out of the children a thirst for learning new techniques in art and they have had a chance to really get 'hands on' within the group - something which is often shyed away from by teachers in the classroom during school hours. It has been an opportunity for children to value their art work and take pride in pieces that they create.
