Children are naturally creative, but as they get older and more focused on schoolwork and exams, they have less opportunity to get messy, get inventive, or express themselves through art.

Our two-hour School's Out Art Mash-Ups will give them the perfect break from homework and allow them to have fun by experimenting with painting on canvas and letting their imaginations run wild. There is something to suit every inquisitive and creative mind.

Young artists and fans of dragons and other mythical creatures will delight in creating their own pottery dragon. Let your imaginations run wild - will you create a three-headed hydra, a scaly serpent or a friendly and loveable dragon to take home and keep as a pet?

As well as using a range of clay tools to mould, pattern, shape and form the clay, participants will learn how to attach different pieces of clay together to build up their incredible dragon.

The pieces will be fired with a clear glaze by the artist educator and returned for collection after firing, ensuring that they last a lifetime.
