Free Summer Holiday Workshops Announced for Families
The summer holidays have arrived for Doncaster families, but they won’t be stuck for something to do!
darts (Doncaster Community Arts) has announced a series of new free Drop In Activities for families, in addition to its programme of Happy Holidays Family Workshops.
These inclusive and welcoming family workshops include:
Draw Doncaster: using fabric paints and other arts and crafts, help us to create a colourful map of Doncaster!
Word Play: create a giant word picture, play with different languages and have fun making stories at The Point!
The workshops take place on Tuesdays in the holidays from 10am – 12pm and 1 – 3pm (13th and 20th August). All families with children age 4-11 are welcome.
Assistant Director, Helen Jones said: “We are really keen to get to know our neighbours and would love to invite people living near The Point on South Parade to pop in and meet us! We are a welcoming building with lots on offer and our staff our really friendly.
“These activities are designed so that families can pop in and try something new and fun – either for 10 minutes or for the whole two hours!”
The Scribble Doodle & Draw exhibition in the Gallery at The Point has also been extended until 2nd August so families have more time to visit and get involved in the activities while they are on holiday.
