Home Education Arts Award

8th, 15th and 22nd July

We are offering a new Arts Award (discover level) course for home educated children led by a professional local artist.  We will take inspiration from our heritage collection to explore and research various art forms including mono printing, clay work and painting.   The course runs for three consecutive Thursdays in July beginning on Thursday 8th July, continuing on Thursday 15th July and ending on Thursday 22nd July.  This introductory level course is available for home educated children, aged 7- 12, who must be accompanied by 1 adult.  All 3 sessions must be attended to complete your arts award logbook and gain your Arts Award Discover certificate. The course price includes entry to the museum so you are free to explore the museum grounds in the afternoon after each session.  Please note there is a minimum number of children required for the course to run. Tickets include three sessions and are valid for one child and an accompanying adult.

You can buy your tickets here.
