Week of creative activity during summer holidays
A week of creative activity for young people, organised by the children’s charity ST-ART, is being held in Barton upon Humber during the summer holidays.
Trained Arts Award Advisor and ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight, along with specialist artists, will be running the activities based on creative activity with an environmental theme.
Between Monday August 14 and Friday August 18 Janine will be running activities that will lead to the Arts Award Explore award, an Entry Level 3 qualification on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) where young people collect their arts experiences in an arts log as they go along, recording what they find and enjoy.
Based at The Ropewalk on Maltkiln Road, there will be excursions to the nearby nature reserve to collect materials for a miniature garden and to use the clay to build miniature fairy houses or garden sheds.
Hedgehog and bug houses will also be built to encourage wildlife into your garden and there will be the opportunity to find out about The Ropewalk as an organisation and record all your work in a portfolio to receive your Arts Award certificate from Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
Children attending the full week must attend for the full week and bring a packed lunch with them.
The cost for the Explore Week the cost is £60 for each child.
