Seedlings Early Years Workshops - June 31 May - 2 Jun 2018

The Paper Playground. Let’s leave the toys aside awhile to play with the packaging! In the second of our monthly early years programme Seedlings for ages 2-4, we explore the creative potential of paper!

What might we get paper to do and what might paper get us to do...
Paper hats? Paper aprons?
Paper folds? Paper wraps?
Paper dinner? Paper music?
Paper trees? Paper shadows?
Paper snow? Paper giraffes??
...let’s take some time to play with the extraordinarily ordinary possibilities of paper!

These visual art workshops will offer opportunities to explore materials in playful and engaging activities, ideal for getting little ones (and their grown-ups!) imagining and creating together.

Our Seedlings workshops are devised and presented by Lucy Hill. Lucy is the inaugural recipient of The Ark’s John Coolahan Early Years Artist Residency and will be devising and delivering an exciting workshop programme for children in the early years at The Ark from May 2018 until April 2019.
