Art in Oaks park – Kids Art workshops
PGCE trained teacher Jo Sharpe has been running children’s art classes and workshops in schools and libraries for several years. She’s really excited to be able to offer these holiday workshops from Studio 9 Oaks Park. In the summer months you can enjoy a great day family day out visiting the fabulous lavender fields across the road and explore and eat ice-creams in beautiful Oaks Park. In Autumn, enjoy a walk admiring the autumn trees and a have an hearty lunch at the cafe . Book 2 sessions in the afternoon and Jo will give the children a drink and a snack and a play in the park for 15 mins and you can have the afternoon off! To keep everyone safe, whilst Corona Virus is still present, the workshops takes place outside Studio 9 in Oaks park when the weather is warm enough. Classes last for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The workshops sizes are small to allow for social distancing. Please also read the covid guidance below and feel free to ask me any questions. Should you wish to book a private family workshop for family and friends, please contact Jo and she will be happy to oblige. Book ahead to secure a place.
