Summer activities at ST-ART

By janetuplin |

Young people from South Killingholme to Scunthorpe have the chance to get creative during the long summer holidays thanks to the Barton upon Humber based charity ST-ART which launches its four week long programme of activities and workshops on July 29.

This year the summer programme takes its theme from Jules Verne’s novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
“This year the summer programme is focussing on art that can be found throughout the world.  Our aim is to draw children and young people away from the electronic media to get hands-on experience in our activities and workshops,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.

“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.”

She highlighted two venues that would be holding art activities this year.

At the South Killingholme Community Centre activities are taking place every Wednesday afternoon from July 31 to August 21 and include making a hot air balloon mobile, a miniature globe, an around the world survival kit and a clay totem pole.

At Winterton Old School Hall, again activities are taking place every Wednesday afternoon of the programme and as well as making a miniature globe and an around the world survival kit there is also sessions on going around the world in five pop ups and making around the world spectacular jewellery.

The Riddings Children’s Centre and the Westcliff Youth Centre, both in Scunthorpe, are also hosting workshops as are villages throughout North Lincolnshire.

Full details of all half day workshops, as well as two longer workshops creating a brand new animation and a modern day musical featuring music from around the world, where they are taking place and the costs involved can be found on  Alternatively contact Janine on 01652 660380.
