Children's Storytime in the RWA galleries
7th December 2013, 7th December 2013, Saturday 11th January, 1st February, 1st March 2014. 11am and 2pm
The RWA is delighted to announce that we have received an Arts Council England grant which has allowed us to buy a Children's Arts Trolley and has enabled us to start storytime sessions aswell.
Storytime takes place in the RWA gallery itself, we sit and talk a little bit about one of the exhibition pictures and then the story teller will read from a selection of story books. As Scribble and Sketch runs on the same saturday this is an ideal for any siblings who would prefer to listen to a story than join in the drawing. Suitable for all ages, all children must be accompanied by an adult.
The trolley is now available at anytime for families visiting the gallery offering a variety of games, drawing equipment and magnifiers to help entertain younger ones as you all tour the exhibition.
