Summer art activities with ST-ART
Summer art activities, ranging from Samba drumming to making sculptures from recycled materials, have been organised throughout August by the Barton upon Humber based children’s charity, ST-ART.
Offering a wide range of art activities for young people taking place during the long summer holiday, the programme aims to develop creativity and channel young imaginations.
This summer’s sessions take place in various locations across North Lincolnshire including free activities in partnership with the Forge Project in Scunthorpe.
“ST-ART works with young people aged between two and 16 years but primarily with the five to 13 year age range,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.
This summer’s activities include making Green Man masks; creating leaping sculptures, inspired by creatures found in the garden, using recycled materials; making unusual display stands using vintage tea cups, saucers, candlesticks and plates and making your own fireman’s hat and working water pistol.
These activities take place in villages from South Killingholme Primary School in the east to Epworth in the west with The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber and the Melior Community College, Westcliff Youth Centre and Berkeley Infant School in Scunthorpe also just some of the venues hosting activities.
The free Scunthorpe activities, organised in conjunction with The Forge Project at the New Brumby Methodist Church on Cottage Beck Road, are being held at Frodingham Infant School as well as The Forge.
Workshops cost £1 for a 2-hour session and an adult must always accompany children under eight years and the current programme should be checked for any other requirements.
