Let Your Children ROCK Their Creative Talent!
Does your child have a passion for all things creative? Do they spend hours with pen in hand, using up all your reams of printer paper, or are they forever asking for leftover kitchen roll tubes to turn into rockets? Let them embrace their inner Neil Buchanan with a brand new creative workshop course, courtesy of Rock Paper Scissors…
Based from Pom Pom Studios, St Peters Street, the 12-week ‘Studio After-School Art Programme’ - run by local mums Chloe Peacock and art tutor Lulu Horsfield - encourages youngsters to draw, make and learn a variety of artistic skills: including painting, printmaking, illustration, clay modelling, textiles and more.
“We started Rock Paper Scissors after being unable to find anything similar for our own children,” Chloe says. “We have been running a Saturday art club at La Tour Cycle Cafe for about a year, along with holiday workshops, and these are our first after school sessions. We are very excited!”
The classes are aimed at children aged 7-12 - but Rock Paper Scissors welcome budding artists from outside of this age range if they are keen to get involved. ‘Building Confidence & Curiosity Through Creative Play’ is the organisation’s motto - allowing the course to be inclusive and inspiring to children from all backgrounds is a key aspect of Chloe and Lulu’s vision.
Children will even host an end-of-term show, where they will have the opportunity to present their artwork to family and friends.
Classes start on 23rd April and will take place every Tuesday from 4pm-6pm; and with a sketchbook, portfolio, snacks, drinks, aprons and materials all included in the course price, all that’s left to do is work out where you’ll be displaying their works of art!
And if a 12-week course doesn’t suit, Rock Paper Scissors also offer a number of regular themed workshop days - including ‘Easter Holiday Hide Out’ (12th April) and ‘Twisted History’ (28th May) - perfect school holiday activities to keep boredom at bay!
