Half-term fun for children at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum

Children can get SMART at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum during the school half-term holiday.

The venue’s SMART programme launches on Friday 22 May with a free Dino Dinner Hunt, which runs throughout the half-term week.

The hunt challenges visitors to find snacks hidden in the gallery for the dinosaurs currently on display in Anthony James’ Creaturama exhibition - with a chance to win a prize.

On Tuesday 26 May the gallery hosts a free Colourful Canal Boats workshop, where children can create a 3D canal boat from paper and decorate it with colouring pens and stickers.

The drop-in workshop, for children of all ages, runs from 10.15am to 12.15pm.

And on Wednesday 27 May, Anthony James returns to the gallery to host a Dinosaur Workshop, where youngsters can create prehistoric creatures from recycled materials.

The workshop, for eight to 11-year-olds, runs from 10am to 12.15pm. Places at the workshop cost £5.50 and must be booked in advance by calling (01788) 533201.

On Friday 29 May the gallery’s free Little Discoveries session for under fives gives youngsters the chance to make a Roman shield.

The session runs from 1pm to 3pm.

Children must be accompanied by an adult at all activities.

Rugby Art Gallery and Museum opens from 10am to 5pm, Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and from 12 noon to 4pm on Bank Holidays.
