ARTISTIC children are being invited to take part in a project inspired by the borough’s coastline.
North Tyneside Council has commissioned visual artist Elizabeth Kane to run five free drop-in sessions for children aged under 13.
They will be held at the former X-Catalogue store, in Park View Shopping Centre, Whitley Bay, from Monday, October 24, to Friday, October 28, from 10.30am to 3pm each day.
Elizabeth, a fully qualified art teacher, has previously run workshops in a variety of settings, including Wallsend Festival.
Children will work together with the artist to create an art installation inspired by the borough’s world-class coast, making a range of sea creatures using collage.
When all the work is completed it will be shown in a pop-up exhibition in Whitley Bay.
At busy times a queuing system will operate as there is only space for a maximum of eight children at any one time.
Children should wear appropriate clothing and must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
