Planting Pots and growing buttons…at ART CLUB

We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at ART CLUB this month planting, playing, drawing and making.

We were thrilled to get back our clay flowerpots made last month that were kindly fired and glazed by The clay studio Manchester and get to work planting some sunflower seeds in them that we can plant out later in the summer to create our annual Sunflower Alley.


Alongside this we created spring flower pictures from old buttons, material, tissue paper, canvasses and pens.

Oils pastels and paints were available for the younger children to experiment with making bright and bold drawings of flowers and more abstract pieces. Some of the children have a real eye for colour palettes and lots of fun was had. we especially enjoyed hanging them up in the alley to dry!

It was a fun filled and relaxed afternoon where neighbours chatted, children played ( there was water play too which the children love but can get messy pretty quickly) and made some beautiful art and we have made a start on our sunflowers for the summer.

ALLEY WEEK 2018 will be coming soon ….. stay tuned!
