ST*ART Drawing classes at Norwich Castle
1st September to 20th October 2018
ST*ART Club led by Artist Ali Atkins
ST*ART Club is designed for children aged approximately 8-12 and aims to develop their confidence and creativity through fun activities which are inspired by the castle’s art galleries. We aim to deepen children’s knowledge and understanding and equip them with the means for self-expression.
ST*ART Drawing begins with games, challenges and activities to introduce children to all things drawing! Children will create landscapes, portraits, mixed media experimental drawings and even stage gallery take overs. In week 6 we will have an exhibition to which family and friends are invited to see all the exciting work that has been created.
