Looking for holiday activities for your kids on the French Riviera? This Summer Le Hangar art studio has launched ‘Hangar Kids’ with creative workshops for children aged 5 and up! Le Hangar is a fantastic space for kids to express their creativity, experiment with different materials…and get messy (without having to clear up afterwards)!
I’m running fun Art and Craft workshops in July, with Cassie from the Hangar board, where we will vary and tackle different projects, with each child given the encouragement they need to succeed. These are just some of the activities your child may do:
– using an artist easel and experimenting with acrylic paint on a canvas
– creating art from natural objects
– crafting a creative dream catcher or treasure box.
My inspiration for these workshops came from enjoying all the crafty projects I do with my son, now age five, and wanting to provide further creative opportunities for him and his friends in the holidays. He loves having a go at painting on a real artist’s easel and experimenting with the textures you can make with paint using different objects such as corks, string, brushes, and leaves.
Our first workshops last week were a great success, telling by the smiles on the little artists who said they had fun! They proudly took home large paintings and drawings on paper, a small painted canvas, decorated treasure boxes, dream catchers and more, to show their family.
The next Art and Craft workshops, and parallel Pottery workshops will be held on Thursday 19 & Friday 20 July, followed by Pottery workshops throughout August. Each workshop is 2 hours long with morning sessions from 10:00 -12:00, and 13:00 – 15:00. If your child would like to do two workshops on one day, and bring a packed lunch for in between, they are welcome to. See you there!
