Sporkbird by Karen SimpsonSunday 2 June 2019, 10.00am – 4.00pm
Children from 8 to 13 years are invited to the Seaside Museum to achieve a Discover in a Day Art Award.
They will find out about the work of a professional artist, look for different art forms in the museum and create and share their own work.
If possible, we would hope that children (or small groups of children) can be accompanied by an adult.
Our thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund for enabling us to offer this award FREE of charge.
Children will create an art log to record their day.
All materials will be provided.
Lunch will be at 12.30pm. Everyone is invited to bring a packed lunch or have a short break at a local café.
If you would like to take part, please request an introduction pack from
