Event description

Delightful art experiences for ages 4-11 enriching our future community leaders. 
From tactile crunchy paper collages to painted papier mâché, HG Play classes are dedicated to enabling children to relate to the historically significant artworks of Emerging From Darkness through sensory-stimulating art activities and play.  

Research tells us that our workshops develop our local kid’s brains, their language and communication, sense of self, social-emotional and multisensory skills.   

Tickets are free but booking is essential, with weekly sessions available during term time.  
All materials included - we encourage you to dress your child for mess or even better, bring a smock! 

Please drop off your child for a 4pm start. You're welcome to stay for the duration and explore the exhibition for free or to pop back and collect them and their artwork at 5pm. 
If your child can no longer make the session, please let us know so we can free up space for another local young creative. 


This event is one of many engaging opportunities to connect with Hamilton Gallery’s Emerging From Darkness exhibition between December 2023 and April 2024. Events range from free to ticketed, with events for all demographics.
