Keep your teens and pre-teens busy this Easter with a three-day art school at the Laing.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit and be inspired by our Quentin Blake: Inside Stories exhibition, which explores the methods behind the famous illustrator's much-loved drawings.

They will learn how to create and develop their own characters then use simple techniques to create their own illustrated story to take away.

Participants must bring a packed lunch each day.

Explore Level Arts Award

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.
