Arty fun for kids in Bristol this February half-term with GO SKETCH

2meter-JPg

This February half-term kids in Bristol can join GO SKETCH for some fun arty workshops!

GO SKETCH are a team of local artists who aim to inspire children by providing fine art workshops in the holidays, after school courses in various schools, arty birthday parties and online art tuition videos to do at home.

GO SKETCH believe that all art should be valued and as a result there is no such thing as ‘good art’ and ‘bad art’. They teach fine art skills in a supportive environment and encourage the children to explore their creativity without fear of being judged and their aim is to build confidence and foster a lifelong love of art.

There are six 2 hour GO SKETCH workshops on offer this February half-term. Each workshop is £15 including all resources and refreshments. A 15% sibling discount is available.
