Climb aboard The Art Express mobile children’s art studio for some art fun on the run!

The Art ExpressThis curious and creative studio is designed for children 3 - 10 years of age. Between 1-3 pm, come and take delight in the simple magic of colouring with flower petals.

Children will be provided with petals of colours to create their own images on canvas, that they can take away with them! Then, from 3 -5 pm join us in pennant making. All participants are going to chip in to help decorate the festive stage area with their pennant art, which will be strung up and put on display for all to enjoy!
