Tree-Mendous time for tots at Early Days children's centre
9 March 2012
Children and families will be working together to create a
sculpture for display in their children's centre in Parsons Cross
Action for Children, the charity which runs Early Days
Children's Centre on behalf of Sheffield City
Council, has appointed artist and gallery owner, Hendrika
Stephens, to lead a two hour workshop at the centre on Saturday
17 March, as part of its national Arts Bank initiative.
Arts Bank, which aims to increase participation and canvas the
views of those taking part, will see children and young people from
30 Action for Children services nationwide taking part in workshops
as varied as graffiti art, animation and documentary making. Their
views will be used to shape the charity's latest participation
Families with children aged 5 and under are invited to the
session, from 10am - 12pm, where they'll use a variety of
materials, including items they bring from home, to decorate a tree
sculpture to represent the role the centre plays in their life.
"We're really looking forward to Hendrika's visit and the
chance for our families to get involved in something a bit
different," said Action for Children parent outreach worker, Fiona
"Arts Bank has enabled us to create a session which will not
only encourage adults and children to get involved but will result
in a beautiful piece of artwork to put on display in the centre for
others to enjoy."
