Explore Art Club Online
Just because our building is closed doesn't mean the fun has to stop. We are still running our Explore Art Club on Tuesday's 4-6pm, but now online! We have a brilliant new artist, Ismail, leading Explore Art Club and he is busy creating fun and engaging activites for ages 8 to 11.
