Mini Picasso’s are 4 sessions a term lasting 45 minutes each of Creative crafts. Conducted by local artist Ann Biggs who is assisted by enthusiastic volunteers Wendy and Cherry, there is no time to get bored.
Mini Picasso’s are open to children from 20 month’s up to 5 years old accompanied by a parent/carer with a maximum of two children per adult. Babies can join brothers and sisters but will need to stay in highchairs during the craft session, so please don’t forget to bring toys or snacks to keep them happy.
You will become as messy as possible so don’t forget to bring appropriate clothes. Every craft you wish to do at home, we offer the opportunity to do it here! The session finishes with tea or coffee for the adults and biscuits for the little ones.
Daffodils are starting to pop up from the ground, the wind begins to blow more calmly, swallows are back and bunnies bounce along all over the place. It is time to reopen the museum.
