Nurture your child's creativity this summer with our Shipley Art School for 7-10 year olds.

Over three days participants will explore our exhibitions as well as a range of historical and contemporary art and craft. They will learn how to create portraits, illustrate stories and create large textile tapestries. There will be a mini exhibition to showcase young artists’ final pieces on the last day of Art Academy.

Please bring a packed lunch each day (snacks and juice provided) and wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.

There is also the opportunity for participants to achieve the nationally accredited Explore Level Arts Award, at an additional cost of £20. More information about the Arts Award can be found on their website.
