Art helps Sherborne youngsters open a window to amazing worlds
CHILDREN spent the half term creating their favourite scenes at an arts workshop in Sherborne.
More than 160 people took part in an arts buffet in the Digby Hall.
Around 47 families attended the event and more than 100 children aged 11 and under tried their hand at the theme life through a porthole.
Visitors were invited to imagine a scene through a window or porthole and create it using plates, pens, paints, paper, glue and other arts materials.

Organiser Jennie Loader, takepArt community arts co-ordinator at Sherborne Artslink, said: “It was a lovely day. We had some brilliant designs, including scenes from under the sea and outer space.”
The free sessions are part of the Big Lottery funded TakepArt project run by Sherborne charity ArtsLink and hosted by a professional artist. The event takes place throughout the year at community halls across Sherborne.
Mrs Loader said: “The idea is to inspire families and youngsters to get stuck in, have fun and enjoy themselves by being creative with art.
“We’re always on the look out for volunteers. We are particularly trying to encourage young people to get involved.”
The next Easter-themed arts buffet will take place on Wednesday, April 10, at the Digby Hall between 10.30am and 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4pm. A third buffet of 2013 will take place in May, also at the Digby Hall.
