Art Club for 5-11 year olds

Children can learn new skills, explore using different types of art materials and create their own works of art. Meanwhile, their parents or carers can relax and enjoy a beverage in the pleasant surroundings of Papilio at Heritage in Thornbury, Bristol BS35 2AH who are kindly hosting the club.

The theme for term 2 of 2019/2020 is 'Art from around the world'. As my children are growing older, I am keen for them to learn more about the world outside of the 'Thornbury bubble'. So this term, I will be bringing art techniques from different cultures into the Club for the children to explore.

The Club isn't your average sitting down and all painting a nice picture of the same still life. It is a bit different and is focused om children developing their creativity. It could involve aboriginal dot art, quilling, calligraphy, pom poms, origami and other things if the mood takes us! The content of each session will be updated on the Facebook page @artforkidzthornbury each week.

The sessions will run each Saturday, 9-9.45am from 9th November - 28th December 2019, apart from 7th December when we are at St Mary's Primary School Christmas Fair. Note there will not be a club on 21st December due to family commitments.

The price is £5 per child and is pay as you go (cash on the day or BACs transfer before the session) or a block booking can be made at the beginning of the term (you will get a session free if you book for 6 sessions!). Places are limited, so please book your place(s) by 9pm the Friday before the session by using the 'book now' button above and emailing details of the date(s) and the names of children you would like to attend.

Please note: parents/carers must remain on site at all times during the session.
