Be creative this summer holiday
Young people living in North Lincolnshire are being urged to do something creative during the summer holidays as the Barton upon Humber based charity ST-ART launches its four week long programme of activities and workshops.
ST-ART project co-ordinator Janine Knight explained that this year the summer programme was taking the theme from Jules Verne’s novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
“The programme starts on July 29 and we will be focussing on the art that can be found throughout the world,,” she said. “Our aim is to draw children and young people away from the electronic media to get hands-on experience in our activities and workshops.”
This year activities are being staged throughout North Lincolnshire including Riddings and Westcliff in Scunthorpe.
“There is so much to choose from this summer,” said Janine. “Half-day workshops include making hot air balloon mobiles, and around the world survival kit, totem poles, sombreros and a spectacular bejewelled necklace.”
“We are also running two longer sessions, both at The Ropewalk in Barton,” she added.
“The first is a three day session starting on Monday, August 5, suitable for seven to 13 year olds, with film-makers Focus7 to create a short animation film.
A five day workshop, beginning on Monday, August 19 and suitable for seven to 16 year olds, sees Duckegg Theatre showing young people different performance styles and songs from a range of places including Africa, India and the United States while putting together their very own modern day Culture Club Musical.”
Half day workshops cost just £1 while the Animation workshop costs £15 and the Culture Club Musical costs £25.
