About the Event
FREE event, but numbers are limited so please book a ticket per child. All children must be accompanied by an adult (no ticket needed for adults).
Become a little green artist at Heaton Park Stables with The EarlyBird Project. We'll be making paints and paintbrushes from nature’s treasures and creating a colour collage to carry out a nature hunt in the park. Suitable for children aged 2 and over. All welcome to get creative with nature!
This is sure to be a popular event, so please let us know if you're not able to make it after booking tickets so we can offer the space to another little artist - thank you!

Little Green Artists project is a collaboration with Radcliffe Artist Liz Ross. It has been designed todevelop a community of young creatives by introducing eco-art methods and resources to children and encouraging families, encouraging them to develop these ideas further at home.
