Join Jelly artists at the Museum this Summer holiday and get your Discover Arts Award!

A fun and creative holiday club that will use the exhibitions in the museum as a starting point to explore different artistic techniques and processes. All children who take part will earn a Discover Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification, and will be presented with a certificate.

Every day the children will work with an artist to create different pieces of art and record their work in their sketchbooks. The sessions will help the children to explore the exhibits in The MERL and will encourage them to look at the museum in a completely different way.

This is a small group activity with no more than 12 children. The sessions are aimed at ages 7 – 11. All materials are included in the price. The children will need to bring lunch, snacks and water.
