Six weeks of summer with Glynn Vivian Art Gallery

The learning team at Glynn Vivian will be sharing an exciting selection of creative art and craft activities for you to make at home.

Each week they will be sharing a new activity for you to complete, or you can download the whole art pack from www.swansea.gov.uk/glynnvivianlearning

The easy to follow step by step guides will be available from Monday 20 July, for children of all ages and their grown ups.

Following a simple recipe, you can try making your own salt dough play food, create a cardboard pixel head or design a junk rocket with rubbish and recycled bits and pieces from your home.

Send photos of your work online @GlynnVivian #GlynnVivianLearning #GlynnVivianAtHome and will share them each week on our social media pages on Saturdays.

Look out for programmes from the Glynn Vivian team on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and You Tube.

You can also visit our dedicated Glynn Vivian Learning web page for more creative ideas and activities.
