Boosting children’s interest in the arts is the driving force behind a new weekly craft session in Windsor which started on Saturday.
Organised by SL Art, children aged between six and 12 years were invited to come along to The Firestation Centre for Arts and Culture in St Leonard’s Road to make their own spaceships.
Sarah Lawman, who runs the arts session, said: “I have been running SL Art for the last nine years and I recently moved to the area so I thought about starting an arts session in Windsor.
“I am passionate about art, I am an artist myself and as well as being a physical thing that children can produce, it is also very therapeutic.
“It is a form of expression through creativity.
“Children are free to explore and create whatever they like.”
The sessions will run for six weeks at the Firestation and Sarah is hoping to bring them to the surrounding area, including Maidenhead and Windsor.
The hour long sessions cost £7 which includes materials.
