Tate Modern: The 8-14’s Studio – Performing Bodies
This is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring artists to come and create art in a real studio, alongside a professional artist! If your child is aged 8-14 and is passionate about art, this could be an inspiring day where they can meet other young people who are also passionate about art, whilst learning about creative techniques and materials. It is running on 18th February and there is no need to book a ticket, so find out more on the website.
The V&A Museum: Samsung Digital Classroom – Vlogging
Open for young people aged 16-19, this fascinating workshop gives practical skills and career insight in emerging areas of digital art and design. Your child would have the opportunity to learn how to produce, edit and script videos, as well as create their own channels. The world of social media has exploded, so if this is an area your child is interested in, this is a great way to discover how to use it properly. The workshop will take place on 18th February, so make sure you book a ticket here.
We hope this is helpful to anyone that’s in need of holiday activities!
