Create your own 'Techy' Art Exhibition

THIS summer, there are lots of exciting activities for kids going on at Birkenhead Central Library. There are 4 free workshops planned for August based on:- 'Destiny', all with different things to learn and make. The workshops are supported using public funding from the Arts Council England and are led by experienced artists that combine arts and crafts with the latest technology to create:- 'Techy art.'  Children will have the opportunity to create their own piece of techy artwork that will then be displayed in the prestigious Williamson Art Gallery.

The work may light up, change colour, talk, play music or your child may have even made the camera that takes a displayed photograph!

All of the workshops last for 3 days and will take place, between 10am to 3pm, and all are welcome to attend as many or as few of the workshops as they would like. Children can either stay at the workshop during lunchtime or have lunch at home; between 12 noon to 1pm.
