Family Workshops

We run family activities during school holidays to promote the enjoyment of looking and talking about art together. The sessions offer a supported environment in which to explore the exhibitions at the New Art Centre and to develop an ownership from the community in our cultural heritage.

Our sessions are most suitable for families with children aged 5-12. Places are limited, so booking is essential. Please note all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Although there is no cost for accompanying adult(s) we are very grateful for donations to the Trust.
