Holiday Art Fun - Block Printing or Sun Printing (weather dependant)
Next date: Wednesday, 10 April 2024 | 10:30 AM
to 12:30 PM
Join Diamond Valley Art society in the Ironbark Shelter for some hands-on fun activities aimed at 3 to 10 year-olds to create works of art to take home with you. Practicing artists will lead the children.
A hands-on fun activity aimed at 3 to 10 year olds to have a go at creating a handmade-printed card, using plastic board, pens and watercolour. Children will need to already know how to hold and use a pen for this activity to work for them. The paint can be washed off clothes, but feel free to bring an apron if you want.
If weather permits and the sun comes out we will do solar printing, using the sun to create fun prints.
The tools will be on-site, all the children need to do it turn up and have fun. The children are encouraged to create any design they want, it is their creation.
It takes about 20 minutes to create the design and print it, then up to 30 minutes to dry so as to be able to carry the card home (although most will dry within 5 mins).
Bookings are required but you can arrive anytime between 10:30 and 12:00 pm (12:30 finish)
