Family arts programme relaunches

The team at Broadway Gallery, are relaunching their free Saturday Family Arts Sessions from Saturday 14 August.

Every Saturday during August, Family Art Sessions will run at 10am and 1pm. Spaces are limited and can be booked via the Broadway Gallery website. Local artist and Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation Cultural Learning Assistant Mollie Mclellan will be bringing a series of workshops to the newly created Kids’ Gallery upstairs at Broadway Gallery.

Broadway Gallery will also be available to families who wish to create art during opening hours between Thursday and Sunday. Artwork made in opening hours can either be taken home or put on the walls of the gallery to create an exhibition. All sessions are aimed at the whole family, with children supervised by parents or guardians.

Kris Day, Curator at Broadway Gallery said “This is a fantastic opportunity to either catch up on those missed art classes during the pandemic, or for families to bond through creating. Sessions have been created with children and adults in mind so everyone can have fun! Every Saturday will have a different theme, and families can take their works of art home with them at the end.

“On top of these sessions, children under ten with their parents or guardians, can visit at any time during gallery opening hours and use our space and materials to make some art. We will have a ton of crayons, pencils, and paints for them to get creative with. Then they can take home their art OR ask us to put it on the walls!”

Parents and guardians are to supervise children at all Family Arts Sessions and Family Art Drop-In Sessions. For more information on the sessions, follow the Broadway Gallery on Facebook and Instagram.
