Art Club at The Mill

Posted by E17 Designers

From Mo at The Mill:


""I need some extra help for the Drop in Art Club. (3.30 - 5pm)

I set up from 3.00 and it takes about 30 minutes to clear up. So over all its 3 - 5.30 on Thursdays.
It could be split -  someone might be happy to help with the clearing up , and others with helping with the kids ?
It would be good to have a pool -  so people could help a couple of times a month ?

I need people who have the patience to be around children,  (mainly  6 years but can range from 3 years  - 11)  
and who have an interest in painting and other arty activities.
There is no teaching involved just friendly helping, being encouraging, and joining in !

IF  I can get a pool of people , I can advertise the activity more widely and build up the numbers.
For anyone who has a real interest and is keen - they could eventually take a lead on some of the sessions
