Summer School 7-11 year olds

Free creative activities and a packed lunch for 7-11 year olds eligible for free school meals in Southampton.

Our Summer School is four days full of creative activities taking place at John Hansard Gallery exploring costumes, masks, identity, storyboards and comic book ‘zines’, inspired by artist Hetain Patel’s current exhibition Trinity.

This playful week of artist-led activities will allow children to develop their own ideas inspired by the themes in the exhibition, as well as working with others, in a supportive environment where experimentation will be encouraged.

Tuesday 24 August
Led by artist Ali Eales, the day includes drawing games, keeping a sketchbook, making zines and masks to express and explore identity.

Wednesday 25 August
Led by Ali Eales, the workshop includes new drawing games, sketchbook work and sculptural costume making inspired by your ideas of heroes.

Thursday 26 August
Led by filmmaking organisation City Eye, this day will teach you how to make your own storyboard and learn how filmmakers plot action scenes.

Friday 27 August
A chance to build on previous work in the week while newcomers will have a chance to make a zine and a mask.

Children can sign up for one or more days of activities, and packed lunches are provided. Anyone who takes part in all four sessions can achieve a Discover Arts Award.
