An exciting opportunity to be part of a community art project for Easter…

As part of our preparations to celebrate Holy Week and Easter in Morecambe this year, we plan to host a series of Art sessions to work on a concept project
called Chiaroscuro.
As part of this we plan to make cocoons and colourful paper butterflies.
Hopefully people will come to the sessions, and then take things away to
do with their own church and group.
You don’t need to be an experienced artist – everyone is welcome to come and join in!
If anyone would like to come to the Innovate Art Sessions @ West End Impact.
they will be held
Wednesday 2nd Feb 12.45-2.45pm,
Wednesday 16th Feb 12.45-2.45pm.
and Monday 28th February 10am -2pm.

Other times to work together can be arranged, and more information about the whole project will be coming out soon!

We would love you to join in this event. For more information
