Event Details

Free to attend. Limited numbers and booking is essential. Current sessions are full and the next block of sessions starts October 2021.

The project is aimed at primary age children and their families and runs from 10.00am to 12 noon on Saturday mornings, in 12-week blocks, covering mini creative projects that change every four weeks.

Activities are focused on a particular artist or artwork with some light learning about the themes for the older children and parents too. We’ve included everything from storytelling to drawing, to printing, modelling and iPad design work, and hope there’ll be something for everyone. A mid-morning snack is provided.

We ask that a parent or carer attend each week and join in with their children or child.

Picture Play is particularly for those children and parents/carers who may benefit from building confidence and/or children who may need help coming through difficult life events such as loss or separation.

With lots of collaborative project based activities, and the many benefits of team work and ideas sharing, there are an abundance of opportunities to learn creative skills too.

Please contact us for more information or to enquire about booking.

We are grateful to Isle of Wight Council for funding Picture Play.
