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. The room is wheelchair accessible. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support.

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?

Get cosmically crafty and create stellar pieces of art in this one-day short course. Invent and make your own UFO entering the galaxy from an un-discovered planet! Then travel back in time and draw a comic telling your own Great Space Race story. Discover The Lost Landings and change history by uncovering long-lost launch footage by secret space rockets designed by a group of young intergalactic radicals.

MAC's children’s workshops are designed for children to explore a range of creative activities that may include 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.

By the end of the day, children will have:

  • made a UFO they have made and decorated
  • designed a Great Space Race illustrated comic
  • filmed a simple, retro style stop-motion space-launch animation using rockets made during the day

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.
