Join artist Chelsea Canavan to see just how much fun drawing can be. This workshop is for children and their grandparent / older adult to work together using their imaginations and observation skills to experiment with art materials and drawing tools. The workshop will involve children and adults making art together in activities such as collaborative drawing or taking a line for a walk. No experience or skill is necessary and there will be no such thing as “bad drawing”. This will be a playful session that allows for the joy of self-expression for all ages.

Suitable for children aged 3 and older. One adult must accompany a child or children, with a maximum of 3 children per adult.
