Event Information

Join us for a fun-filled day of making your own portrait card, paint, colourful buttons and more. Children will learn all about creating their own portrait and experiment with a range of art techniques and materials.

What will you learn on this course?

In this one-day workshop children will learn how to create a portrait painting using mixed media, recycled materials and fun objects like buttons.

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 need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

No, we will provide drawing and painting materials. Children should dress appropriately as some of the visual art workshops can get a bit messy.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs for this course.
