Let your child get creative this Easter with a three-day art academy at the Laing. They will be inspired by Quentin Blake's famous illustrations in our exhibition Quentin Blake: Inside Stories

Participants will learn how illustrators create and develop their ideas and how they tell stories through images. They will then create their own range of illustrations to take home.

Please bring a packed lunch for your child each day.

There is also the opportunity for participants to achieve the nationally accredited Explore Level Arts Award, at an additional cost. More information on Arts Award.
