Children and Young People

Children’s Art Club
Ages 7 to 11 years

Focal Point Gallery's Children’s Art Club forms an introduction to the artists and exhibitions in the organisation’s rolling programme, and helps participants engage in practical workshops within the exhibition spaces. In these events, children try out new skills, explore materials, and develop their critical abilities in an encouraging and open atmosphere.

Each short course takes place on Saturday mornings, by continued commitment children will have the the opportunity of undertaking Discover and Explore Arts Awards.

Focal Point Gallery is a centre for the nationally recognised Arts Award (please see for more information). Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold awards can be obtained by participating in one of our series of out of school workshops.
