Central Library - Arts Award Explore

Central Library - Arts Award


Central Library was recently able to participate in a pilot scheme for the Arts Award Explore. Over a period of four weeks the children took part in various activities including a drama session, an illustration workshop and looking at art in different forms. The culmination of the project was a presentation to the parents talking about what they had learnt and what they enjoyed.
