The school bell has rung for the final time and the kids have come home from school laden with PE kits, awards and enormous smiles. Now it’s over to you to entertain them for the next SIX weeks…
For some the time may fly, for others you may already be thinking how on earth you’ll fill the days. We like to think we’re a helpful bunch so we’ve planned lots of things for families to do together this summer.
For budding artists join us for See, make, do!, creative craft afternoons every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in July and August (excluding 12, 13 & 14 August), where you can be inspired by our collections and take your own artwork home each time. Best of all, you can leave the mess behind with us! Suitable for children aged 10 years and under.
For older children we host Family Art Club on the last Saturday of every month, at 11am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 3.30pm. It is FREE and open to children aged 7 – 12, who love art and want to create artworks of their own to take home. Each month a member of staff or local artist helps the children and their adults explore our collections in an unique and creative way, introducing new themes, materials and techniques.
On Saturday 25 July we will be looking at our Picturing Venice exhibition with artist Josie Jenkins who will help us to create landscape paintings, using acrylic on board and on Saturday 29 August we will be taking inspiration from an 18th century cabinet and turn our hand to quilling, the historic art of rolling thin strips of paper and shaping them, to create incredible designs.
To join us for either or both of these Family Art Club sessions please book in advance using our pages on Eventbrite. The Walker Art Gallery also hosts Family Art Club, for more information on their sessions please visit the website.
Finally for those of you not jetting off to sunnier climates this year we are bringing Venice to Port Sunlight from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 August with our Venetian Street Parties from 1pm. Come and celebrate ‘La dolce vita!’ with us!
