Art in the Park

Free family Art in the Park sessions at Danbury

Join INSTAR, artists Trish Evans and Nick Humphreys for a fun creative family workshop inspired by their giant tree kaleidoscope at Danbury Country Park called the Infinity Forest.

Children will create their very own kaleidoscope to take away, make their own stencil visual artwork inspired by the colours and designs of the Infinity Forest sculpture and help to create a collective visual artwork inspired by our love of forests.

Suitable for families (children under 7yrs of age must be accompanied by an adult throughout the workshop).

Sessions will last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Letter to the forest family tree
