Over the last few weeks the Devil’s Porridge Museum has welcomed local artist Jack O’Hara and his group of budding young cartoonists on Friday afternoons with the launch of their Cartoon Workshop Club. So far, they have worked on Sponge Bob Square Pants, The Pink Panther and Charlie Brown’s loyal friend Snoopy, although so far there has been no sign of his arch enemy the Red Baron and his iconic World War One Bi-plane.
Access and Learning Officer at the Museum Steven Bogle said “It’s a fantastic opportunity for local young people to develop their artistic skills under Jack’s guidance and a great addition to the after school activities we run at the museum”.
Steven continued, “The fun won’t stop over the Easter holidays as we have a dedicated team at the museum who will be running different activities each day and we try to offer something for everyone. We will be creating replica WW1 helmets, playing traditional playground games outside and painting Easter eggs. I’m particularly looking forward to a visit from Kung Fu & Tai Chi club based in Rigg who will be delivering the excitement of Kung Fu and Lion Dancing.”
All activities are free, for a full list of Easter holiday activities, see devilsporridge.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
