Celebrate Mexico's Día De Los Muertos by making a spooky paper mache mask. Decorate with fluorescent paints and see your work glow under UV light. We'll even add miniature LED lights to create an unearthly illumination!

What will you learn on this course?

MAC’s fun one-day workshops are designed for children to explore a range of creative activities including visual arts, crafts, digital media and performance. All the workshops are for the same age range and offer an introduction to a particular art form. The children can usually take home anything they have made during the day.

In this workshop children will design, draw and paint Day of the Dead themed masks, working with ultra violet responsive paint and fluorescent papers and other materials as well as LED lights. Their art work will become transformed in the dark with UV lighting in a controlled and safe environment.

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 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. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. 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 age ranges need to be adhered to.

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.

Children should dress appropriately as some of the visual art workshops can get a bit messy. Children should bring a water based drink.
