Children’s Art Club
Ages 8 to 13 years
Do you have a child interested in art? Focal Point Gallery's Children’s Art Club forms an introduction to the artists and exhibitions in the organisation’s rolling programme, and helps participants engage in practical workshops within the exhibition space. In these events, children try out new skills, explore materials, and develop their critical abilities in an encouraging and open atmosphere. Each short course consists of five sessions and takes place on Saturdays between 10.30am and 12.30pm. Children can either attend single session or parents can book five in a row.
Focal Point Gallery is a centre for the nationally recognised Arts Award (please see www.artsaward.org.uk
'Discover', 'Explore', 'Bronze', 'Silver' and 'Gold' awards can be obtained by participating in one of our series of out of school workshops.
