February Half Term was a really busy, fun week where sooo much creative art was made.

Here's some images from the session Crafty Creatures ran at Belmont Library, Durham. The theme was "Famous Artists" and was designed to show children an insight into some artists they may or may not have heard of and for them to 're-create' their work using a wide range of materials, and of course adding their own unique style. Artists were Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. Lots of different materials were on hand to create the masterpieces from charcoal to lots of different brushes used to create different paint textures for their own Pollock work of art. The session was designed for 7-12 year olds, however some younger siblings couldn't resist to unleash their creative side too!

The work has been used for a display in the children's section of the library.
