The summer sessions were hosted in the gallery’s new community garden.
Parents and their children were joined by artist Penny Evans, who helped them create a mini creature to take home. Penny said: “We had lots of fun! The children really enjoyed sawing up elder branches and even the younger ones made their own creatures.”
The gallery is currently gearing up for a Hayward Touring exhibition of screen-prints by Eduardo Paolozzi - part of a national tour.
The exhibition will be running from Saturday, September 10, to Saturday, October 8.
Running alongside this exhibition, in the gallery’s project space, will be a display of artworks inspired by Paolozzi created by adults attending ROC Creative Honiton - a developmental arts project supporting and involving people with learning disabilities.
