Pom Pom’s school holiday program is locked in and with the support of Northern Area Community & Youth Services (NACYS) we are going to bring Pom Pom outsite as well as the usual indoor activities.
Jake Holmes will work with participants to develop an outdoor pavement mural amongst the benches outside the studio and support the kids in designing their own ‘game’ that can be painted onto the surface.
Bernadette Klavins will engage participants in making small sculptures and develop a design for a semi-permanent structure for the garden.
While indoor activities include a wall installation of fabric and cardboard with Nancy Downes, illustration and drawing with Robin Tatlow-Lord and wearable artwork with Alice Potter.
