Seaside Sessions: Children’s Eco Arts Workshop

30 October 2020
1:30 pm
3:30 pm

Join us aboard the ONCA Barge this Autumn and investigate Art in Nature as part of ONCA’s Nature2020 programme.

ONCA’s community artist Sally Bourner will facilitate a relaxed and creative afternoon for children aged 6-11 years. Through creative activities we will explore our local living coast; stones, shells and seaweed will all become tools to make marks and create art.

Please wear clothes that can get messy.

Please let us know if you or your child has any access requirements that we need to know about.

Parents and guardians are welcome to join this session, but it is not required.

Please note, spaces are limited by current Government guidelines. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please contact ONCA prior to the workshop so we can open the space up to someone else.

**Please note ONCA’s COVID-19 Declaration Form MUST be completed prior to attending the workshop**
