For Young People
We have two great opportunities for young people to get involved - Young Harris for those aged 12-16 and Sparks for 16-19 year olds.
Aged 12+ – Fire your imagination and unleash your creative side at one of our workshops! Spend time exploring topics in more depth with Harris experts and get the chance to gain your Bronze Arts Award.
Young Harris meets about once a month to work on projects with artists and Harris staff. If you'd like to join, please contact Kyra on 01772 905412 or take a look below.
Sparks is for 16-19 year olds. You can find out about contemporary art, work with professional artists and gallery staff, and make your own work. There is also the chance to work towards gaining your Silver or Gold Arts Award. Find out more here.
We're taking a break - look out for more workshop dates soon!
