More than 500 young people throughout North Lincolnshire enjoyed two weeks of workshops and events in a programme put on by the Barton upon Humber children’s charity, ST-ART
Easter and the promise of Spring was the theme for the programme which included venues in Scunthorpe and Barton as well as rural North Lincolnshire.
The screening of Fantastic Mr Fox and theatre performances by the Theatre of Widdershins and Tell Tale Hearts were the highlights of the Easter arts and crafts activities which also included workshops on a spring theme including making egg cups, Easter baskets of various descriptions and name plaques.
“A wide range of artists delivered the workshops which went really well,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.
“Lots of young people attended each session and the outdoor workshops were particularly popular and the young people took advantage of the warm, spring sunshine,” she continued.
Already Janine has decided on a theme for the summer half-term holidays.
“We will be screening the film Alice in Wonderland on June 3 starting at 2pm and before that, at 1pm, we will be hosting a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party,” she said.
